Abstract

In this paper we discuss the potential for application of x-ray holographic imaging techniques to the sequencing of DNA. We formulate an approximate model for the scattering of partially coherent x-rays from an oriented DNA fiber and show the feasibility of reconstruction of heavy atom label positions from the x-ray scattering data. A series of simulations has been done to demonstrate the required reconstruction algorithms. An x-ray experiment is currently in progress to demonstrate the real feasibility of the technique.
