Our student reserach team iGEM NAWI Graz 2019 envisioned, outlined and tested a potential approach to measure the concentration of American foulbrood spores in a liquid with a phage-covered biosensor and demonstrate the proof of concept. The Beeosensor could be used as an early warning tool, when the disease is still in a managable stadium.
This is the Poster we presented at the iGEM competition conference in Boston (view in ResearchGate). We also visualized the detection concept of Beeosensor in an animation. Detailed information can be found in the full documentation of our project. (The design has suffered from the tight time constraints, as it took us a while to get results in the lab.)
