Novel Approaches to DNA Sequencing
Novel Approaches to DNA Sequencing
10-14 June 2013


Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden


This workshop will be centered on the physical principles behind novel approaches to electronic DNA sequencing and shall provide a forum to review the state of the field and to discuss venues for future methodology development. It will bring together leading researchers who work on experimental, theoretical and computational studies of DNA sequencing with nano-sized electrical probes, in particular on the promising recent development regarding graphene-based architectures. The workshop will foster close collaboration between theorists and researchers who are experts either in the fabrication of nano-structures or in the field of experimental genome sequencing.
