LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Nov. 10, 1998 -- Researchers have stolen a page from Mother Nature to develop a technique for detecting the toxin that causes cholera. The technique should work equally well at detecting other protein-based toxins potentially used in biowarfare or terrorism and at detecting early signs of infection in clinical settings.
The above story is based on materials provided by Los Alamos National Lab. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
