There’s a large unmet need for accurate, fast, and inexpensive diagnostics for active tuberculosis (ATB), which claims the lives over a million people per year. A team of researchers from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), and several other collaborating institutions have created a fast, ultrasensitive, multiplexed diagnostic TB test, that could be used in low-resource settings.

Interestingly creating glowing fish for pets wasn't the original purpose of the experiment. Instead these glowing fish were designed to sense toxins in the environment.
