In recent years, single molecule technology has experienced a rapid growth, with exciting developments in fundamental research and real-world applications. Detecting and studying biological phenomena on the
single molecule level requires a unique synergy between researchers working on instrumentation, physics, and the life sciences. In the iScience special issue ‘‘Single Molecule Technology – From Biotechnology to
Biomedical Applications’’, guest edited by Amit Meller and Chirlmin Joo (Figure 1), we are highlighting a variety of research on nanopore technology, single molecule fluorescence, and a selection of other ultra-
sensitive detection methods. More content in the special issue can be found here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/iscience/special-issue/10PGSBV55N0. The guest editors in this backstory share their thoughts on what is currently exciting in the field, and the advances they think will make an impact in the near future.
