Professor KWON Sunghoon’s team has developed a DNA laser printer

Professor Sunghoon Kwon’s research team (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering) has developed a DNA laser printer. A DNA laser printer is a desk-sized platform that enables speedy DNA sequence synthesis. Before now, DNA sequencing was time-consuming because researchers had to extract each sequence and synthesize them one by one. The new DNA laser printer allows researchers to save time and effort by operating a sequencing database which categorizes errorless DNA sets that can be readily used to extract needed DNA. The research team stated that the DNA laser printer will enable research which originally took several years and several hundred million Korean won to be completed within several days and at an expense of only several million Korean won.
