Nanopores enable the sensing of individual molecules based on the temporary blockades in ionic pore current. Initially conducted a decade ago with a biological protein pore, electrical recordings are now routinely performed with synthetic pores sculptured into polymeric and inorganic membranes. Assisted by channel engineering, the range of analytes has been expanded from nucleic acids to peptides,...
