Nanopores Found Useful in Detecting Single Molecule Movements

Nanopore’s are proving to be useful for more than just DNA sequencing. The pico sized wonder’s have shown that they can even identify single molecular reactions, such as those between proteins with much better resolution that any other technology has made possible until today. Unlike the Swiss researchers who used viscous solution to slow down […]

Nanoparticle Vaccines for On-demand Vaccine Production and Administration

Engineers at the University of Washington synthesized nanoparticles using an engineered protein to improve vaccine production and administration. Moving from attenuated or killed pathogens to protein-based subunit vaccines which are usually formulated with adjuvants, the researchers developed a calcium phosphate core-immunogen shell nanoparticle to exploit the potential of nanoparticles as effective delivery vehicles. Preliminary studies […]

New Programming Language Makes Coding for Synthetic DNA Possible

Researchers from the University of Washington have developed a new programming language. Unlike the conventional programming languages used to write codes for computers, this programming language can be used to program DNA molecules and other chemicals instructing them how to interact in in-vitro or in-vivo environments. The programming language for chemistry is developed with an […]

NanoFacture DRS Makes Extracting DNA within Minutes Possible

The life sciences market has various DNA sequencing devices featuring different technologies and available at different price ranges. But all these devices need to be fed purified DNA samples for sequencing, and DNA separation and purification is one of the cumbersome, time consuming processes. The conventional protocols for DNA separation and purification also involve toxic […]
