A Nanoscale Platform to Detect DNA Molecules (image) University of Pennsylvania Share Print E-Mail Caption University of Pennsylvania researchers developed a carbon-based, nanoscale platform to electrically detect single DNA molecules. Electric fields push tiny DNA strands through atomically-thin graphene nanopores that ultimately may sequence DNA bases by their unique electrical signature.
