Biotechnology-utilized nanopore for single-molecule investigation

Jiwook Shim, Li Qun Gu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The nanopore sheds light with its potential biotechnology applications and moreover, is being intensively investigated, developed as the next-generation of DNA-sequencing technology with US 1,000 genome sequencing program supported by the US National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). This chapter will introduce our recent research on biological, synthetic nanopores, new methods of investigating single-molecule kinetics with nanopore, and nanopore-based sensing devices.
