Drndic & Shepard Nature Methods: New Integrated Platform Paves the Way to Cheaper, Faster DNA Sequencing
Penn Physics and Engineering researchers measure single molecules faster and with less error than can be achieved with commercial instruments. "We combined the most sensitive electronics with the most sensitive solid-state nanopores," says Drndic.
