Nanotech Basis for Fast DNA Sequencing

31 July 2012 Cleantech & Nano Publication

Last week, it was exciting to prepare a talk on new developments in nanotechnology for the USPTO. Leading the list of exciting sub-topics was how nanotech is being used for revolutionary fast DNA sequencing, a core aspect of personalized medicine. Recent 977 nanotech patent publications focus on nanopore technology, for example. Semiconductor processing is also being used to integrate with nucleic acid sequencing in revolutionary ways, bringing down the amount of time and money needed for sequencing. Nanotech has always been looking for its “killer app” – fast DNA sequencing could be it for the second decade of the NNI. Time to increase the publicity surrounding this revolution and its source in nanotech.
