DIANA: DIAgnosis on disordered NAnostructured platforms
aim and scope
The project DIANA, "
DIAgnostic potential of disorder: development of an innovative NAnostructured platform for rapid, label-free and low-cost analysis of genomic DNA
" has been financed by Regione Lazio
Progetti di Gruppi di ricerca
The project is a collaboration among researchers from the
Istituto di Microelettronica e Microsistemi
Istituto di Farmacologia Traslazionale
(CNR), and the
Dipartimento di Scienze di Base e Applicate per l'Ingegneria
The project aims to develop reliable, quick, and label-free diagnostic techniques for genomic DNA using Raman analysis of target molecules directly deposited on nanostructured substrates.
To this end the peculiarities of the mechanical interaction between silver-coated silicon nanowires and the DNA molecules will be exploited.
