Title: DNA; Nanoscale Pores
Description: Graphic showing a lipid bilayer membrane (blue) with an alpha-hemolysin nanopore. A polyethylene glycol molecule (green globular structure) is transiting the pore; others are in solution on one side of the membrane. The colored spheres represent individual atoms, and are approximately 0.5 nanometers in diameter, or one-twenty-thousandth the width of a human hair.

*EEEL, nanoscale pores
