Taiwanese Team Developing Single-Molecule Real-Time Optical Sequencing Tech Registers for X-Prize

The team's patent-pending method uses arrays of up to a million nanowells on a composite "sTOP" chip — short for "sequencing on top of a photodiode" — that consists of three layers: a light-emitting tier in which the nanowells are embedded, a filtering tier, and a photo-sensing tier.
