Harvard's Wyss Institute Develops Nanodevice Manufacturing Strategy Using DNA Building Blocks


May 30, 2012

numerals, letters, and other structures Researchers at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University have developed a method for building complex nanostructures out of interlocking DNA building blocks that can be programmed to assemble themselves into precisely designed shapes. With further development, the technology could one day enable the creation of new, nanoscale devices that deliver drugs directly to disease sites. Full Story
