Biosensor chip detects single nucleotide polymorphism wirelessly, with higher sensitivity

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 9 июля, 2018 - 21:21
Scientists have developed a chip that can detect a type of genetic mutation known as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and send the results in real time to an electronic device. The chip is at least 1,000 times more sensitive at detecting an SNP than current technology. The advance could lead to cheaper, faster and portable biosensors for early detection of genetic markers for diseases such as cancer.

Manipulating single atoms with an electron beam

ScienceDaily.com: Nanotechnology News - 9 июля, 2018 - 19:02
The same electrons that form images of atomic structures can also be used to move atoms in materials. This technique of single-atom manipulation is now able to achieve nearly perfect control over the movement of individual silicon impurity atoms within the lattice of graphene, the two-dimensional sheet of carbon.
