Manufacturing biomolecules ‘on the go’
Wyss Institute researchers have developed a biomolecular manufacturing method that can quickly and easily produce a wide range of vaccines, antimicrobial peptides and antibody conjugates while doing so anywhere, even in places without access to electrical power or refrigeration. The breakthrough could provide a life-saving workaround for making modern interventions available in remote areas. Today...
High Density Information Storage in DNA
A new method developed at the Wyss Institute allows for synthesis of oligonucleotides by the thousands on a single DNA microchip — a collection of thousands of different DNA segments attached to a glass slide or other solid surface. Until now, generating long strands of DNA has been challenging and labor-intensive. Yet Wyss researchers have...
Multiplex Automated Genomic Engineering (MAGE)
Developed at the Wyss Institute, MAGE harnesses the natural principles of evolution to do all the heavy lifting of genome design and automates these steps to dramatically shorten the time scale required to produce microbes with specialized functionalities for manufacturing, sensing and therapeutic applications. Genome engineering has a wide range of applications, from developing new...
Diagnosing Emerging Outbreaks
Paper-based diagnostics developed at the Wyss Institute can be customized to detect the genetic signatures of RNA viruses like Ebola, Zika, SARS, measles, influenza, hepatitis C, and West Nile fever within one week after the causative agent is identified. The ability to pinpoint a strain-specific diagnosis in the field could prove valuable to national and...
