Tomorrow's tech: Science and research

A prototype chip could ease the process of scanning DNA, while digital technology aims to offer some order to virtual volumes of research.

What will be the technology of tomorrow? STMicroelectronics says a prototype chip could ease the process of scanning DNA for genes. Also, digital technology aims to offer some order to the virtual volumes of research produced by universities.


STMicroelectronics has created a prototype of a chip that, if released commercially, could substantially cut the costs for scanning for genetic diseases.
