'Sticky' DNA crystals promise new way to process information

Imagine information stored on something only a hundredth the size of the next generation computer chip--and made from nature's own storage molecule, DNA. A team at the University of Minnesota, has used the selective "stickiness" of DNA to construct a scaffolding for closely spaced nanoparticles that could exchange information on a scale of only 10 angstroms.
