Nanopores for sequencing - what if and what else?

Discussion created by bvilozny on Sep 14, 2011

Here are some points to initiate a discussion and see what's on people's minds:


I've been thinking lately about the potential of nanopores for sequencing (as described in the article below). nology


There is a huge effort to string nucleic acids through pores. How would this change the game of sequencing? Is it really just a matter of cost?


And (not to be pessimistic) if it doesn't pan out, what else are nanopores good for?
