The UW Nanopore Lab is a biophysics lab in the Department of Physics that does precision measurement on DNA and the molecular machines that interact with it. We use a modified version of a naturally occurring nanopore called MspA to perform all our experiments.
A single strand of DNA is a connected string of differently shaped molecules called nucleotides and these molecules block the current differently due to their differing shape and chemical properties. By recording the change in current over time, we can determine what the sequence of DNA is and this is what is referred to as "nanopore sequencing". Our research uses nanopore sequencing and SPRNT (Single-Molecule Picometer-Resolution Nanopore Tweezers) to improve our understanding of these biophysical systems advance medical technology.
The Nanopore Lab has an outstanding opportunity for a Laboratory Technician to support research in the Nanopore Physics Lab. This laboratory technician will perform routine laboratory and related work under close supervision of the P.I. or Research Associates, primarily biophysical experiments focused towards single molecule nanopore sequencing of DNA.
