Applications of plasmonic nanoparticles for in vivo biosensing of plants

Conference Paper

Further understanding of biomass producing associated metabolic pathways in plants can be used to increase the production of biomass. In vivo detection of these markers has proved to be limited due to complex sample preparation required by traditional methods. Recently the Vo-Dinh group has designed a platform to detect nucleic acid targets in biological systems called inverse molecular sentinels which utilize surface-enhanced Raman scattering. These multimodal probes were shown to detect and image key microRNA within whole plants in vivo. This work lays the foundation for detecting and imaging biological markers in plants with enhanced spatial and temporal resolution.
