DNA IN NANOTUBES SERVES AS GENE CAPTURER FOR MEDICINE, FORENSICS, ETC

The molecule of life just got a new job description.

University of Florida scientists have coaxed a piece of DNA to act in concert with a filter-like membrane and tiny hollow tubes called nanotubes to find and retrieve other DNA dissolved in a solution. It’s the first time researchers have turned to a nanotube filter based on DNA to perform a task now routine in medical research, criminal forensics and other areas...read the wave
