In the News: Highlighted on Congresswoman’s Grants News Letters

ASU’s Dr. Quan Qing awarded $389,000 for scalable fabrication and recognition tunneling sequencing study of solid-state nanopore devices

This grant will be used to focus on developing a new strategy for producing solid state nanopore devices with transverse control electrodes, to enable large scale production of next-generation nanopore-based DNA sequencing machines, which feature precise electronic control of DNA translocation and high-resolution recognition tunneling current readout. Developing this technology will create a new platform for low-cost, high-throughput DNA sequencing, and serve as an affordable genomic tool for personalized medicine.
