Halcyon Molecular developing electron microscopy-based sequencing

Overview: Start-up Halcyon Molecular is developing a method to sequence nucleic acids using high-atomic-number-labeled bases and electron microscopy. This approach to detection was first proposed by Richard Feynman around 1958. Halycon Molecular is also developing a number of supporting techniques, including use of functionalized needles to stretch and place taut DNA onto substrates for subsequent analysis. The company has around 15 employees and is located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
