DNA is a molecule in humans that encodes genetic information in the sequence of its nucleotides. The ability to read this sequence quickly, reliably and at a low cost is the first step towards personalized medicine. Unfortunately, currently employed methods for reading the DNA sequence have various drawbacks, such as being too expensive or taking too much time. Nanometer-scale holes in synthetic membranes, or simply solid-state nanopores, have emerged as a promising platform for single-molecule studies. In a typical setup, a membrane with a nanopore is placed in a solution and an applied electric bias drives charged molecules such as DNA and ions through the hole. The idea of the nanopore-based DNA sequencing method is to read the sequence of nucleotides in a molecule as it moves through the pore. Typically employed ionic current measurements are, however, not sensitive enough to detect the minute differences in the organization of atoms in the nucleotides. Moreover, fast DNA motion through synthetic nanopores makes it difficult to obtain clear signals needed to extract the information about DNA sequence. Plasmonic nanopores engage nanoplasmonics to control the electrophoretic motion of DNA through the pore as well as read the sequence of nucleotides by greatly enhancing the Raman spectroscopy signals. In our study we employ computational methods to investigate how solid-state nanopores, plasmon resonance, and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy can work together making fast, cheap, and reliable DNA sequencing a reality.
