 Synthetic Biology Offers New Hope For Malaria
Victims March 24, 2004


5
According to the WHO, each year nearly 500
million people become infected with malaria, and
nearly three million mostly children die from
it.

"By inserting genes from three separate organisms
into the E. coli, we're creating a bacterial
strain that can produce the artemisinin
precursor, amorphadiene. We are now attempting to
clone the remaining genes needed for the E. coli
to produce artemisinin." -- chemical engineering
professor Jay Keasling

Poison Water
  • Arsenic poisoning affects 100 million people
  • Serious in Bangladesh
  • Wells tap sedimentary layer with Arsenic
  • 1 in 4 wells contaminated
  • Testing methods expensive, require instruments
    and expertise

25
Range of Outputs
  • If no arsenic is present Urease raises the pH to
    9-10
  • If 5 ppb arsenic is present Repressor shuts down
    Urease, pH remains neutral, pH 7
  • If 20 ppb arsenic is present LacZ produced, pH
    4.5

Project Summary
Our team have designed and modelled a biosensor
that can detect several different concentrations
of arsenic and emit a pH signal in response. The
device can detect the WHO guideline level of 10
ppb and the Bangladeshi standard of 50 ppb for
arsenic in drinking water. A proof of concept
Biobrick construct has shown a pH response to a
concentration of arsenic of 5 ppb.
