Protein engineering and the development of generic biosensors.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Biosensors exploit the remarkable specificity of biomolecular recognition to provide analytical tools that can measure the presence of a single molecular species in a complex mixture. A new strategy is emerging in the development of biosensor technologies: molecular-engineering techniques are being used to adapt the properties of proteins to simple, generic detector instrumentation, rather than adapting instruments to the unique requirements of a natural molecule.
