Those were some of the key requirements of Warren Zipfel, assistant director of the NIH-funded Developmental Resource for Biological Imaging and Optoelectronics (DRBIO) at Cornell University, who is involved in constructing the data-acquisition hardware of a new "nano-device" designed to quantify DNA fragments In collaboration with DRBIO researchers Jonas Korlach and group director Watt Webb, and with nanofabrication experts Mathieu Foquet and Harold Craighead of Cornell's Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC), the group is using a combination of sophisticated silica substrates, electrophoresis, optics, and PC-based data acquisition to gather statistics on fragment sizing in DNA.
