DNA Base Identification by Electron Microscopy.
Bell DC, Thomas WK, Murtagh KM, Dionne CA, Graham AC, Anderson JE, Glover WR. Advances in DNA sequencing, based on fluorescent microscopy, have transformed many areas of biological research. However, only relatively short molecules can be sequenced by these technologies. Dramatic improvements in genomic research will require accurate sequencing... - MEMS technology
New method measures movements of tiny devices at every step
The group tracked, for the first time, the step-by-step motion of a standard type MEMS device called a "scratch drive actuator," a micromachine (120 um wide, 50 um long, and 1.5 um thick) that drags itself over a surface by repeatedly flexing and ...

A bit of a stretch? Characterising the mechanical properties of cell ...
One cell thick monolayers are the simplest tissues found in multicellular organisms, yet they fulfil critical roles in normal physiology lining blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract. A key function of cell monolayers is to resist mechanical forces and act as physical barriers...
