Discovery - Video
Electric field-driven transport of double-stranded DNA through a synthetic nanopore.

This movie illustrates electric field-driven transport of double-stranded DNA through a synthetic nanopore obtained as a result of a large-scale molecular dynamics simulation. The DNA molecule stretches as it permeates through the pore constriction, tilting its bases, and that enables researchers to detect sequences.
