Summary

The point of this paper was to detail the behavior of DNA as it passes through a synthetic silicon nitride nanopore. Two reservoirs containing an aqueous ionic glycerol solution were connected by a pore with a 4 nm diameter. An electrode was placed in each reservoir and a constant bias voltage was applied across the nanopore.
