Description/Abstract

  • We are working on a rapid and novel diagnosis of the bacterium Bordetella pertussis, which is the known cause of whooping cough. As this can be deadly if not treated soon enough in infants, and in light of the recent whooping cough epidemic in California in 2010 and now Oregon, our project is incredibly relevant to public health concerns. The main issue in the diagnosis of the disease is the ability to detect the presence of the bacteria. To this end, we are engineering the genome of the Bordetella phage using synthetic biology principles, and BioBricking genetic parts to add to the Registry of Standard Biological Parts.
