Game Changer for Next-Gen Sequencing

Posted by Jessica Delage on June 27, 2017 at 4:04 PM

It's Spectacular ! DNA sequencing was experimented and performed by NASA.  Now, The ability to sequence the DNA of living organisms in space opens a whole new world of scientific and medical possibilities. Scientists consider it a game changer. 


The crew member uses the pocket-sized MinION.  This technology known as nanopore sequencing, which sends an ionic current through tiny pores in natural cell membranes. As DNA molecules pass through these nanopores one by one, the changes in ion flow are recorded and used to decode the DNA sequence. A sequencing run can take as little as 10 minutes.

Do you imagine the volume of the data will be generated in the next few year.  If the researsh of NASA start to use DNA Molecules?  It's Amazing!
