Faster testing for artificial antibodies

Researchers at Berkeley have created a new system to rapidly test artificial antibodies. This feels like a strong brute-force attack against pathogens. “The system starts with a nanosheet made up of molecules called peptoids. This is then coated in loops of other peptoids, which the team calls “loopoids.” The nanosheet provides the supporting structure, while the loopoids are the active parts, latching onto molecules that may be present in different pathogens.” learn more
