The Hunt for Genetically Engineered Organisms
Similar to a Star Trek Tricorder device, physicists and biologists at the University of Notre Dame, Rice University, and the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in New York have teamed up to develop a field-ready device to detect the genetic or protein signature of genetically engineered (GE) organisms in the environment.
Collaborating to Increase Educational Opportunities
