Molecole di DNA in canali nanometrici_Bionano Genomics

Bionano optical mapping shows single DNA molecules that flow (from top to bottom) inside nanometer-sized channels on a silicone support. The coloration, made through fluorescent compounds that bind tightly to the DNA, serves to visualize the molecules themselves (blue) and some specific sequences (light green). A high definition camera placed above the support is able to record the molecules as they flow inside the nanochannels, thus converting light signals into information on the DNA.
