Study Results Indicate Carbon Nanotubes Could Act as Nano-tunnels in Single-Molecule Sequencing

Researchers at Arizona State University demonstrated for the first time that DNA can translocate through a single-walled carbon nanotube. In the process, they found that the properties of the tubes could make them a useful device for single-molecule sequencing because they can slow the rate of translocation to a speed where reading the sequence may actually be possible.
