What do you think the ramifications will be on our knowledge of cellular structure and genetics?

Great article! I saw the same experiment described in another publication several days ago, and very much enjoyed reading it.
Since my job mainly involves designing Raman spectroscopy equipment, including a confocal Raman microscope, I found the article especially interesting. I gather they are using SERS, or surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy, off the tip of that gold wire.
And yes, such techniques will find a wealth of applications in cellular biology and genetics. Many companies are trying to get similar technologies to market, although they aren't looking at such small-scale effects. Micron level rather than nanometer level.

Maybe bio-nanotech research can get a boost after all. And I thought laser nanotweezers were pretty fab. What ever next? Lattice vibration stethescope?:shrug:

I anticipate it will be the death knell for creation science. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .of course I anticipate a lot of things will be the death knell for this pseudoscience.

I also believe it will be the "death knell", but only for humanity as we know it, for creation science is the belief that God is the ultimate scientist.
