Tiny DNA reader to advance development of anticancer drugs

Researchers have developed a novel method to determine exactly where anticancer drug molecules are incorporated into microscopic strands of DNA. By passing an electrical current between two tiny probes across a strand of DNA, the researchers successfully distinguished drug molecules from normal DNA bases, pinpointing the insertion sites. This technique will allow researchers to study the mechanism of drug activity, leading to more effective anticancer treatments.
