Nanopore technique could revolutionize genomic sequencing of drug-resistant bacteria

New technology (the size of a USB memory stick) could revolutionize genomic sequencing of drug-resistant bacteria. Researchers proved the utility of the new device by successfully mapping multi-drug resistance genes in a Typhoid-causing strain of bacteria - which has recently emerged globally. They say that the technology could enable bacterial identification, diagnosis of infectious diseases and detection of drug-resistance at the point of clinical need.

Solid-state proteins maximize the intensity of fluorescent-protein-based lasers

The same research team that developed the first laser based on a living cell has shown that use of fluorescent proteins in a solid form rather than in solution greatly increases the intensity of light produced, an accomplishment that takes advantage of natural protein structures surrounding the light-emitting portions of the protein molecules.

Nanoscale spheres allow low-cost creation of 3-D nanostructures

Researchers have developed a new lithography technique that uses nanoscale spheres to create three-dimensional (3-D) structures with biomedical, electronic and photonic applications. The new technique is significantly less expensive than conventional methods and does not rely on stacking two-dimensional patterns to create 3-D structures.
