DNA Implanted Bacteria To Detect Glucose

Should a study by a team of students from Missouri University of Science and Technology become reality, individuals suffering with diabetes will be able to monitor their blood sugar levels in a more cost-effective way.

Recently, the team of students at the Missouri S&T chapter of iGEM - the International Genetically Engineered Machine Foundation - designed a biological system using pieces of DNA implanted in bacteria to identify glucose. According to the team, their design could lead to a novel kind of test strip for individuals with diabetes.
