Junctions Expand Nano Railroads

Abstract:
Living cells contain tiny transport systems made from a pair of proteins - microtubules and kinesin - that act much like railroad tracks and railroad cars. Researchers from the University of Washington and Sandia National Laboratories have co-opted the proteins for use in track networks that can be integrated into nanotechnology devices to shuttle tiny amounts of materials around. Their latest research covers how to use junctions in the networks.
