Title: Characterization of Individual Polymer Molecules Based on Monomer-Interface Interactions
Abstract: A method for sequencing a nucleic acid polymer by (1) providing two separate, adjacent pools of a medium and an interface between the two pools, the interface having a channel so dimensioned as to allow sequential monomer-by-monomer passage from one pool to other pool of only one nucleic acid polymer at a time; (2) placing the nucleic acid polymer to be sequenced in one of the two pools; and (3) taking measurements as each of the nucleotide monomers of the nucleic acid polymer passes through the channel so as to sequence the nucleic acid polymer.Start Signature
