2020.8 Dr. Wang is supported by NSF for DNA based storage and readout technologies .(https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=2027215)
This SemiSynBio II award supports our collaboration with Prof. Hao Yan and Prof. Rizal Hariadi to explore the programmability of DNA nanostructures for the encryption keys, making it practically impossible to intercept and break the encryption. The research team will embed encrypted information in three-dimensional DNA origami nanostructures in the form of nanoscopic patterns. The high spatial resolution of DNA-PAINT (DNA-based point accumulation for imaging in nanoscopic topography) (<20 nm) and sapphire-supported nanopore sensors (<10 nm) will support high-density information decryption of intricate single-molecule patterns on the DNA origami, while enabling a fast readout speed of up to 1 MHz. The fast readout methods will employ deep-learning classification techniques for automated decryption and improved accuracy.

2020.4 Dr. Wang is supported by NSF to develop an new sapphire based nanopore device for low-noise DNA sensing.(https://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=2020464)
This NSF-BSF award supports our collaboration with Prof. Amit Meller at Technion to carry out fundamental research to create a significantly improved nanopore sensor platform that integrates low-optical background titanium oxide membranes on low-capacitance and hence low-electrical-noise sapphire. The research team will fabricate small and thin TiO2 membranes on sapphire, establish high-throughput manufacturing methods for both membrane formation and nanopore drilling, perform single-molecule DNA translocation, study the DNA-nanopore interaction, and analyze the data for methylation detection.
