Abstract A set of biocompatible, biodegradable, and biofunctionalizable diffractive optical elements (DOEs) using silk proteins as the building materials is reported. The diffraction pattern of a DOE is highly sensitive to the surrounding environment and the structural integrity, offering numerous opportunities for biosensing applications. 0008 2017 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

A label-free immunosensor based on antibody-modi？ed graphene ？eld effect transistor (GFET) was presented. Antibodies targeting carcinoembryonic antigen (Anti-CEA) were immobilized to the graphene surface via non-covalent modi？cation.
Hypermethylation of CpG islands in the promoter region of many tumor suppressor genes downregulates their expression and in a result promotes tumorigenesis. Therefore, detection of DNA methylation status is a convenient diagnostic tool for cancer detection. Here, we reported a novel method for the integrative detection of methylation by the microfluidic chip-based digital PCR. This method relies on methylation-sensitive restriction enzyme HpaII, which cleaves the unmethylated DNA strands while keeping the methylated ones intact.
