The recent Zika virus outbreak highlights the need for low-cost diagnostics that can be rapidly developed for distribution and use in pandemic regions. Here, we report a pipeline for the rapid design, assembly, and validation of cell-free, paper-based sensors for the detection of the Zika virus RNA genome. By linking isothermal RNA amplification to toehold(More)
Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play crucial roles in diverse cellular processes. There are different types of PPIs based on the composition, affinity and whether the association is permanent or transient. Analyzing the diversity of PPIs at the atomic level is crucial for uncovering the key features governing the interactions involved in PPI. A(More)
Synthetic biology aims to create functional devices, systems, and organisms with novel and useful functions taking advantage of engineering principles applied to biology. Despite great progress over the last decade, an underlying problem in synthetic biology remains the limited number of high-performance, modular, composable parts. A potential route to(More)
