Nanopore Sequencing

Caption: This is an image of alpha-hemolysin pore (made up of 7 identical subunits in 7 colors) and 12-mer single-stranded DNA (in white) on the same scale to illustrate DNA effects on conductance when moving through a nanopore. Below is an orthogonal view of the same molecules. Image created 5-Oct-2008 by George Church using Rasmol_2.6 and coordinates from 7AHL.pdb and 1BNA.pdb
