DNA as a Template for Minerals

Abstract:
DNA carries the blueprint for all living things-and now it could also serve as the model for "dead" inorganic materials. However, the mechanism will be completely different from the usual "transcription" of the code by base pairs; instead, it is DNA's spatial structure that counts in this case. Japanese researchers have used the genetic molecule as a "scaffold" for the construction of tiny silicate rods and rings.
