Abstract

Environmental pollution is worsening due to human activities. Biosensors are an alternative analytical tool to eliminate pollutants in environment. Through the advancement of recombinant technology, genetically modified microbes are now available to be integrated into a biosensor design. The microbes have the ability to produce signals which are not available in the wild type counterpart with certain modified characteristics. In this paper, the application of the genetically modified microbes has been discussed. The performance of the genetically modified microbes in biosensors has been focused and comparison has been done with the wild type counterparts. The future development of biosensors with recombinant microbes require more research in the areas of sensitivity, specificity, and the ability of biosensors to operate under stressed environment are discussed as well.
