Biologocal WMD Agents

DNA Breathing DynamicsSEED 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.

Cancer - Infectious Diseases

Seed Healthcare Potential

 

What if one could unobtrusively be scanned by SEED, literally within the ‘blink of an eye, while walking through the door of a doctor’s office with the results…with no potential ‘false positives’…immediately available by the time one met with the doctor?

Just as SEED can potentially identify and, possibly, mitigate WMD Biological Agents, SEED should also potentially not only identify various medical conditions based on biological chemical markers but, also, mitigate their growth, per the DNA Breathing Dynamics in the Presence of a Terahertz Field study.

Such medical conditions should include cancer, as well as, deadly infectious diseases such as Ebola.

 

 

 

DARPA - THz is big

So, just what is SEED’s…THz’s…overall potential?

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency sees the Potential of THz Technologies

Well, according to DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, THz technologies are cited as one of four DARPA projects that could be “bigger than the internet.”

Just how big? SEED’s potentially a revolutionary technology that can not only detect and identify materials such as explosives at the molecular level from a standoff distance but, also, based on published studies, it may even be able to impact the replication of biological cells, to include toxic contaminants, cancers or WMD biological agents.

Pharmaceutical Contamination Control by Seed

 

 SEED can potentially be utilized for improving quality and uniformity of pharmaceutical products as well as inhibiting toxic growth contamination in manufactured products such as compounded drugs.

Background: On October 16, 2012 a fungus contamination inside a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy led to a lethal outbreak that eventually sickened 233 people in 15 states and resulted in 16 deaths.

Per the DNA Breathing Dynamics in the Presence of a Terahertz Field study, it is known that damage to a fungal cell’s DNA1 inhibits that fungus’ ability to reproduce for, as a result of damaged DNA, the cell’s unable to transfer the necessary genetic code to the RNA2, which is essential to protein manufacturing within that cell.

Consequently, radiation of cells will lead to DNA damage and, thus, eventual cellular death. THz radiation delivered as wavelengths resonant to DNA absorption will, with proper modulation, destroy fungal, bacterial and viral DNA and, accordingly, destroy all cell activity. This application has tremendous pharmaceutical ‘targeting’ potential given the fact that THz radiation will only be absorbed by the particular cellular component resonant at the excitation wavelength of the incident THz wave.
