Take-away: Electrochemical melting with SERS detection on nanostructured electrodes was utilized to discriminate between DNA sequences with different numbers of the GATA short tandem repeat sequence (see diagram). The technique has unique advantages for incorporation into a field-operable DNA analysis device.
