[Source: GenomeWeb News] – Arizona State University will use a $1.7 million Grand Opportunities grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop DNA sequencing technology using carbon nanotubes and which would require less sample preparation and reagents, ASU said Monday.

The two-year grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute will support research at ASU’s Biodesign Institute, which will use the nanotube technology to enable the sequencing of much longer stretches of DNA than is possible with current technologies, according to ASU.
