    I know how to get a pea into a peashooter, but I don't know how to get DNA into a nanopore.

    How is it done? Does the pore wave and shout "Over HEEEEERE!!" ?

    I've had my eye on graphene osmotic membranes for a while. Several approaches have been reported. I'm still waiting for reports of ways to make it by the hectare, which is what will be needed.

    Very small amounts of electricity can be generated.

    Then again, the electron carries a tiny charge.

    Of course it is only a very early experimental version.

    Not me. It's ancient. But Brogioli is a good guy so I'm reserving judgement until I can read it better.
