Sheets of graphene could help enhance nanopore sequencing

08/19/2010 | MIT Technology Review

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University have developed sheets of graphene that could prove useful in identifying DNA bases. They believe the material, which is as thin as a single atom, could be a better alternative to bacterial protein-made nanopores and other membranes used in nanopore sequencing, a technique designed to simplify and accelerate DNA sequencing.
