Latest Nanopore Stories
Genome sequencing will have a profound effect on our understanding of genetic biology and could usher in a day when doctor and patient are able to review individual genome sequences to fully personalise medical treatment.
The twisting, ladder-like form of the DNA moleculeâ€”the architectural floor plan of lifeâ€”contains a universe of information critical to human health.
Membrane-associated receptors, channels and transporters are among the most important drug targets for the pharmaceutical industry.
Research published this week in Nature Nanotechnology shows a new method of enzyme-controlled movement of a single strand of DNA through a protein nanopore.
Extremely thin membrane, a mere one-atom thick, lives up to its acclaim as a 'rapidly rising star'.
In an innovation critical to improved DNA sequencing, a markedly slower transmission of DNA through nanopores has been achieved by a team led by Sandia National Laboratories researchers.
Polymer strands wriggle their way through nanometer-sized pores in a membrane to get from here to there and do their jobs.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a new, carbon-based nanoscale platform to electrically detect single DNA molecules.
Researchers are developing a new kind of DNA sequencer that will make the dream of "reading" a personâ€™s genetic code for less than $1,000 a reality.
The movement of long chain polymers through nanopores is a key part of many biological processes, including the transport of RNA, DNA, and proteins.
