Lowering barriers to DNA-based nanomanufacturing

By 3 January 2013

Two major barriers to advancement of DNA nanotechnology beyond the research lab have been knocked down. This emerging technology employs DNA as a programmable building material for nanometer-scale structures. Many applications are envisioned, and researchers recently demonstrated synthetic membrane channels made from DNA. Until now, however, design processes were hobbled by a lack of feedback …
