A DNA strand should be driven gently through a nanopore

It's not easy to drive long molecule chains through a nanopore because they tend to tangle up. A simulation carried out by an international group of scientists has suggested a solution: it's better to pull gently without applying too much force, otherwise the molecule could be stopped due to excessive friction.
