The Natick U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center seeks to create a durable biosensor to detect pathogenic E. coli in the field. The team assisted the center by collecting data on peptides PGQ and cecropin P1 and their binding affinity to E. coli ML35 via the whole cell binding assay. They automated the WCBA by transferring it to a robotic platform. Finally, the team determined methods for quantifying peptide on the well-plates and made recommendations for future work in this area.
