Genosensing Environmental Pollution

Scientific interest in nucleic acid based biosensors for hybridization detection has increased enormously in recent years. In this chapter the procedures for assembling a nucleic acid biosensor are described. Probe design and immobilization, hybridization at the transducer-solution interface, and approaches used for transducing the biorecognition event are discussed. Applications to environmental monitoring are presented.
