Groundbreaking research at Duke Computer Science: Tiny devices made of DNA can detect cancer with fewer false alarms
Duke Computer Science Professor John Reif and a student research team recently published an article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) about a new cancer-detecting tool which uses tiny circuits made of DNA to identify cancer cells by the molecular signatures on their surface. This innovation provides researchers with the hope that their work could improve diagnosis, or give cancer therapies better aim.Read More
