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.

Major advances in materials science and nanotechnology promise to revolutionize electronic devices with unprecedented strength and conductivity, but those promises can’t be fulfilled if the devices can’t be consistently manufactured. Working on the nanoscale means the effects of even the smallest imperfections are magnified, but University of Pennsylvania physicists have developed a new printing technique that is effective at making carbon nanotube devices with minimal impurities.
