Using Carbon Nanotubes To Seek and Destroy Anthrax Toxin and Other Harmful Proteins
Troy, N.Y. - Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute [profile] have developed a new way to seek out specific proteins, including dangerous proteins such as anthrax toxin, and render them harmless using nothing but light. The technique lends itself to the creation of new antibacterial and antimicrobial films to help curb the spread of germs, and also holds promise for new methods of seeking out and killing tumors in the human body.

- I'M MERELY POSTING IT TO PROVE WE OUT-POST INSTAPUNDIT EVEN AT THE STUFF HE FINDS INTERESTING AND WE DON'T. HEH.
