Harvard's Wyss Institute Team Creates Versatile 3-D Nanostructures Using DNA "Bricks"
November 29, 2012
Researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University have created more than 100 3-D nanostructures using DNA building blocks that function like Lego bricks--a major advance from the 2-D structures the same team built a few months ago.
