ACS Editors’ Choice: Detecting Zika Virus Without Instruments at the Point of Care — And More!

This week: Zika Virus detection,  charge-free proteins, discovering cyanobacteriochromes that respond to far-red light — and more!

Each and every day, ACS grants free access to a new peer-reviewed research article from one of the Society’s journals. These articles are specially chosen by a team of scientific editors of ACS journals from around the world to highlight the transformative power of chemistry. Access to these articles will remain open to all as a public service.

Check out this week’s picks!
