Revolutionizing Reading DNA
Unlimited ability to read the genome will transform life … a giant leap for mankind
How We Achieve
We utilized the principles of molecular electronics combined with advances in CMOS chips, nano-fabrication and bio-sensor technology, in order to tackle one of the biggest issues of our time: precision medicine. To realize the full promise and power of precision medicine, we must make whole genome sequencing low cost and accessible on a population scale.
“With Roswell we see the sequencing revolution continuing by another factor of ten — combined with a nearly insatiable, growing set of applications and appetite for reading DNA. We hope this moves us ever closer to equitable access to precision medicine for all.”
– Dr. George Church, world-renowned geneticist and professor, Harvard University and MIT
What is Molecular Electronics?
Molecular electronics refers to using single molecules as components in electrical circuits, where they perform diverse functions such as switches, resistors, or transistors. This is a form of nanotechnology, where molecules provide nano-scale circuit elements. This field was first envisioned in the 1970's. The first actual single molecule circuits were made in research labs in the 1990's. Roswell is taking this to the ultimate level, integrating molecules directly into the circuits on standard semiconductor chips, for use as sensors. Roswell Molecular Electronics sensor chips are the ideal platform for reading DNA quickly, simply, accurately, and low cost.Read more
Where It Can
