Molecular Mechanisms for Interrogating Nucleic Acids

NABLab is interested in the development of nucleic acid-based molecular research tools. Instrumentation, such as next generation sequencing and digital PCR platform, have now been developed that allow high throughput and accuracy of nucleic acids, but generally are expensive, bulky, and not widely available. Improvements at the molecular level are synergistic with improvements at the instrumentation level, and can either improve performance of existing equipment, or reduce the size and expense of instrumentation for given applications and tasks.
