Louis Guenther, Alex; University of California, Irvine Basu, Chhandak; Biology, California State University, Northridge Abstract: Rise in air pollution has led to increasing cancer, several respiratory and cardiac illnesses in humans.

We also found that at higher frequencies, the RF signal experiences 4-6 d B more attenuation in soil than air.

The exact value depends on the frequency and antenna polarization type.

The recombinant plasmid containing the ACS gene was electroporated into the GV101 strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens.

Arabidopsis plants were genetically engineered with ACS gene by dipping the T0 (transgenic zero or wild type) flowering plants into GV101 strain of Agrobacterium containing the recombinant binary vector.

The first part of our experiment was conducted in a 103-gallon weathertight trunk container filled with sand, mostly composed of silica in the form of quartz, with no clay.

On the other hand, the path loss in sand is about 0.9-1.2 d B more than air.

It is therefore, preferred to use lower band frequencies for underground biosensors.

World Health Organization estimates that one in eight person die from air pollution.

The main objective of our study is to analyze the feasibility of genetically engineered plants to remove polluting volatile compounds from air.
