Nanotechnology is now all the rage in biological physics. I came up with one of the first ideas for applying nanotechnology to the nascent dream of sequencing the human genome, an dream that Los Alamos Labs helped initiate when it created the first DNA libraries from flow-sorted chromosomes. I decided I could build a better gel using nanofabrication. I'll outline where that initial idea lead, from nanochannels to nanomixers to deterministic sorters and try to give a view of where the future will lead.
