Direct Read DNA Sequencing and Epigenetics

Armonica is developing advanced nanochip systems for direct reading of DNA and study of single molecules.  Focused on reading much longer segments of DNA than is possible with current state of the art gene sequencing, the company’s technology will slow the movement of DNA through nanopores so its bases can be read optically.  As important, is the ability of the direct read approach to measure epigenetic changes that can only be studied today with extensive chemical manipulation of the DNA.
