As reported in the journal Science, physicists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and the University of Michigan have shown that synthetic membrane channels can be constructed through "DNA nanotechnology."

Genome Sequencing In Minutes - Too Fast To Handle
2012-10-19 04:13:54

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.

Graphene Membranes Could Lead To Enhanced Natural Gas Production And Reduce CO2 Pollution
