Rapid DNA Sequencing May Soon be Routine Part of Each Patient's Medical Record, According to Science



5/23/2012 7:30:27 AM

Rapid DNA sequencing may soon become a routine part of each individual's medical record, providing enormous information previously sequestered in the human genome's 3 billion nucleotide bases. The journal Science describes recent advances in sequencing technology. Stuart Lindsay, director of the Biodesign Institute's Center for Single Molecule Biophysics has just successfully addressed a central stumbling block in nanopore sequencing -- reading single nucleotide bases in a DNA chain. Lindsay's latest experimental results, which demonstrate critical improvements in DNA reads, have just appeared in the journal Nanotechnology.
