High-speed nanoporous DNA sequencing was developed by a team of scientists from the BioDesign Institute of the University of Arizona and the IBM Watson Research Center. This prototype of the new device can be used in the daily work of a doctor. Such technologies are especially relevant in the era of personalized medicine when information about the patient's DNA and protein profile can be used to select individual treatment of diseases. These are technologies that completely change the rules of the game in medicine and pharmacy. Sequencing the genome in everyday clinical practice becomes a reality. A new achievement allows doing it for only $1000 - a fairly modest sum by the standards of American medicine. In a recent study, scientists tested a microscopic device for reading DNA, which is several thousand times less than the thickness of a human hair.
