Singapore Scientists Discover New Biological Sensors For Vitamins And Essential Molecules

In a pioneering study, scientists led by Dr Wan Yue (Senior Research Scientist) and Professor Niranjan Nagarajan (Associate Director and Senior Group Leader) at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR) Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), developed the first rapid, large scale structure-probing screening method for biological sensors known as riboswitches, or RNA sensors. The new high-throughput method for screening RNA sensors could lead to a better understanding of how the human body detects and responds to environmental changes, and aid the monitoring of our health more closely and effectively.
