Nanopore Sequencing Continues To Advance

Two research groups have devised strategies to sequence DNA more rapidly and inexpensively
Department: Science & Technology

Two research groups have brought nanopore DNA sequencing closer to reality. These scientists are among those trying to sequence DNA more rapidly and inexpensively than is currently possible by identifying nucleotides one by one as they traverse a tiny hole. This approach could aid personalized medicine, which aims to tailor drugs or medical treatments to people on the basis of their individual genetic makeup.
