NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Building on a previous nanopore sensor method for biomarker detection, researchers from Wake Forest University have shown that their nanopore sensing technique can detect epigenetic modifications.

The technique could be used to identify epigenetic modifications that are difficult to detect by other methods, and would have applications in both research to discover new epigenetic modifications as well as in the clinic to identify epigenetic modifications relevant to cancer.
