BU Team Uses Lasers to Control DNA Translocation Through Solid-State Nanopore | GenomeWeb

Researchers at Boston University have found that laser light can control the speed at which DNA translocates through a solid-state nanopore. Additionally, directing a laser beam at a solid-state nanopore also enables very small proteins to be distinguished and helps to unclog blocked nanopores, increasing their lifespan.
