alexa Genetic safety switches could help curb potential bioterror risks

OMICS International organises 3000+ Global Conferenceseries Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

Genetic safety switches could help curb potential bioterror risks

The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals that a new method developed by scientists to reduce the threat of bioterrorism using man made biological organisms. This was implemented with modifications in DNA where a set of genetic switches have been developed to control function of genes they need to survive.

 

This control on genes were developed with addition of mixture of naturally occurring chemicals. These could prevent potential harm from either the theft or misuse of these substances, which are used in biofuels, food, and medicines.

 

Synthetic biology, a fast developing field providing benefits to society but its potential risks are limiting them on biological designs.
