Reports Summarize Nanotechnology Study Results from University of North Carolina (Interpreting the Conductance Blockades of DNA Translocations through Solid-State Nanopores)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Nanotechnology are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Greensboro, North Carolina, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Solid-state nanopore electrical signatures can be convoluted and are thus challenging to Interpret. In order to better understand the origin of these conductance changes, we investigate the translocation of DNA through small, thin pores over a range of voltage."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of North Carolina, "We observe multiple, discrete populations of conductance blockades that vary with applied voltage. To describe our observations, we develop a simple model that is applicable to solid-state nanopores generally."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "These results represent an important step toward understanding the dynamics of the electrokinetic translocation process."
