Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Nanopores can identify the amino acids in proteins, the first step to sequencing

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, News Bureau) While DNA sequencing is a useful tool for determining what's going on in a cell or a person's body, it only tells part of the story. Protein sequencing could soon give researchers a wider window into a cell's workings. A new study demonstrates that nanopores can be used to identify all 20 amino acids in proteins, a major step toward protein sequencing.
