Polymer translocation through nanopores in active media containing nonchiral and chiral active particles


Polymer translocation through nanopores has been a major area of interest due to its significance in biological and technological applications, including viral genome injection, translocation of DNA through nano-channels, and DNA sequencing. The presence of active constituents in living cells and many biological processes brings polymer translocation an interesting problem in soft matter physics. In this talk, I will present our recent work on polymer translocation in active media where we study the translocation of a flexible polymer chain through a membrane pore under the influence of active forces and steric exclusion using Langevin dynami ...
