DNATrax, a 2013 R&D 100 Award winning technology, is a safe and versatile material containing food-based microparticles that can be used for the safe and effective detection and tracking of aerosol releases in both interior and exterior environments. By combining FDA-approved sugars, and a unique non-biological DNA bar code, a microparticle that simulates the aerosols compromising the air around us was produced. DNATrax will enable pollutant identification and empower customers to improve indoor air quality.
Advances in high-performance computing make computational drug screening advantageous in time and cost. We show feasibility by implementing parallel, scalable programming and running it on 15,000 computers.
