This is an exciting field of research, which spans from fundamental biophysical studies on biopolymers to biosensing and diagnostics. Based on rather unique instrumental capabilities, we are in a position to not only detect and control translocation of single biomolecules, but also to characterise them at a sub-molecular level. This opens up new avenues towards all-electronic biosensing and new types of DNA assays.
