Lab-scale gene chips, move over for your smaller counterpart. Hao Yan of the Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute's Center for Single Molecule Biophysics led researchers in creating a very small tool that may revolutionize genetic research. This tool, a nano gene chip, can be used to examine thousands of genes at the same time for mutations, much like the current gene chips, only this time the technology is tens of thousands of times smaller. Stuart Lindsay, a physics professor and...
