Study results on carbon nanotubes: single-molecule sequencingTags: arizona state university, biodesign institute, genomics
[Source: Genome Web] - Researchers at Arizona State University demonstrated for the first time that DNA can translocate through a single-walled carbon nanotube. In the process, they found that the properties of the tubes could make them a useful device for single-molecule sequencing because they can slow the rate of translocation to a speed where reading the sequence may actually be possible.
Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
