Researchers have created super-sniffer mice that have an increased ability to detect a specific odor, according to a new study. The mice, which can be tuned to have different levels of sensitivity to any smell by using mouse or human odor receptors, could be used as land-mine detectors or as the basis for novel disease sensors.
