Latest Nanopore sequencing Stories
LONDON, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DNA sequencing is the process of reading nucleotide bases in a specific DNA molecule, that is to say determining the arrangement mode of adenine, thymine,
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.
