The research and development of electrochemical biosensors applied to life sciences during the past years were reviewed in the present article. In the first part of the article, a brief introduction on nanomaterial based electrochemical DNA biosensors is given. In the second part DNA biosensors and transition metal complexes with biological interest are described. Finally, the development trends of electrochemical biosensors in genetic and epigenetic testing are being discussed.
