Developing biosecurity tool to detect genetically engineered organisms in the wild

(Worcester Polytechnic Institute) If a genetically or synthetically engineered organism gets into the environment, how will we tell it apart from the millions of naturally occurring microorganisms? Recently, the US government and research scientists have identified a need for new tools that can detect engineered organisms that have been accidentally or intentionally released beyond the lab. With scientists from Raytheon and other universities, WPI chemical engineer Eric Young is helping develop a detection tool based on DNA signatures.
