Faster Nanopore Sequencing Simulation Based on Graphene Nanoribbons

Nanopore sequencing technology could be faster and more accurate, according to a simulation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). In the recently developed model, DNA passes through a nanohole in the middle of an ultra-thin graphene sheet functionalized with nitrogenous bases that retain its complementary DNA nucleotide, generating a specific electrical signal. The study was published in the […]
