Functional Nucleic Acid Based Biosensors for GMO Detection

  • Yunbo Luo


With the growing presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our daily lives, discussions and concerns about it have not ceased. Meanwhile, many different methods for GMO detection have been developed based on molecule or protein. And the functional nucleic acid has made an important contribution to the detection with its unique advantages.
