Researchers produce graphene nanoribbons with nanopores for fast DNA sequencing

The new DNA sensor uses graphene, a lattice of carbon roughly the thickness of an atom.

Researchers produce graphene nanoribbons with nanopores for fast DNA sequencing

Science Recorder | Jonathan Marker | Monday, November 18, 2013

According to a November 14 news release from Penn State University, researchers have paved the way for a new gene sequencing technique that is based on threading the 3 billion letter-long DNA sequences unique to each and every human through a tiny hole and using a nearby sensor to read each letter as it passes through...
