Abstract

The World Health Organization has identified the development of a rapid point-of-care diagnostic test for Zika virus as a top research priority. In a recent Cell paper, Pardee et al. (2016) have exploited recent advances in synthetic biology and molecular engineering to deliver a sensitive, affordable, and field-ready Zika test.
