SEED can be utilized to not only identify biological agents (WBD) but also, potentially, mitigate their replication.
SEED’s potentially a revolutionary technology that can not only detect and identify materials at the molecular level, such as bio toxin from a standoff distance but, also, based on published studies, it may even be able to impact the replication of biological cells, to include WMD biological agents, toxic contaminants and even cancers.
DNA Breathing Dynamics in the Presence of a Terahertz Field
ABSTRACT: We consider the influence of a terahertz field on the breathing dynamics of double-stranded DNA. We model the spontaneous formation of spatially localized openings of a damped and driven DNA chain, and find that linear instabilities lead to dynamic dimerization, while true local strand separations require a threshold amplitude mechanism. Based on our results we argue that a specific terahertz radiation exposure may significantly affect the natural dynamics of DNA, and thereby influence intricate molecular processes involved in gene expression and DNA replication.
