Latest Nanopore sequencing Stories
DALLAS, October 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global and China DNA Sequencing Industry Research Report, 2014-2017 says with the advancement of DNA sequencing technology
Nanopores may one day lead a revolution in DNA sequencing. By sliding DNA molecules one at a time through tiny holes in a thin membrane, it may be possible to decode long stretches of DNA at lightning speeds.
If we wanted to count the number of people in a crowd, we could make on the fly estimates, very likely to be imprecise, or we could ask each person to pass through a turnstile.
The allure of personalized medicine has made new, more efficient ways of sequencing genes a top research priority. One promising technique involves reading DNA bases using changes in electrical current as they are threaded through a nanoscopic hole.
A new study has addressed the claim that nanopore technology is advancing so quickly that it is on the verge of making DNA analysis so fast and inexpensive that a person’s entire genome could be sequenced in just minutes and at a fraction of the cost.
Less Costly Ways of Sequencing DNA Could Open New Possibilities for Disease Prevention
DNA sequencing is the driving force behind key discoveries in medicine and biology.
The latest advance in solid-state nanopore sensors – devices that are made with standard tools of the semiconductor industry yet can offer single-molecule sensitivity for label-free protein screening – expands their bag of tricks through bionanotechnology.
