In the Environmental Biotechnology Laboratory, the research being done focuses on three main subjects. One is the construction of recombinant bacterial and mammalian cells and their application in biomonitoring system for the detection and monitoring of toxicity and endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). The second focus is the development of novel biosensors including DNA chip based biosensor, Biochip and nanobiosensor. The third includes eco- & chemi-toxicogenomic studies and the inter-comparison of prokaryotic and eukaryotic gene expression patterns when the cells or organisms are exposed to toxic materials. This is accomplished using the DNA microarray and biomolecular diagnosis systems, such as real-time PCR.
