Nanopore-Based Technology Improved For Detecting DNA Molecules, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne Study
Published: Nov 18, 2013
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 latter resembles the model that EPFL researchers have used for creating a "DNA reader" that is able to detect the passage of individual DNA molecules through a tiny hole: a nanopore with integrated graphene transistor.
