Part of the Environmental Science book series (ESE)


DNA electrochemical biosensors, realized by immobilizing an oligonucleotide sequence of the calf thymus DNA on a suitable electrode surface, are simple to assemble and can provide reliable results; such DNA biosensors hold enormous potential for environmental monitoring (Wang et al. 1997a,b).
