An article co-authored by UT’s Joint Institute of  Computational Sciences and oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers has earned recognition from IOP Science. The article conveys details of the research team’s investigation of a physics-based method of DNA sequencing, which is intended to read the hereditary traits coded in human DNA. The method they explored, known as nanopore sequencing, uses a narrow, single-walled carbon nanotube and electric field to thread a strand of DNA from one reservoir with solvent to another, allowing for the electrical detection of DNA sequences.
