Researchers at New York University, US, have built a nanomechanical device from DNA that synthesizes different products according to its configuration. The device could have applications in creating "designer" polymers, encrypting information or as a variable-input component for DNA-based computing.
"The main application I foresee is the construction of new materials that will be coded by DNA signals and then prepared by the nanomechanical system," said Seeman. "Ultimately, we will be able to make polymers and new materials of remarkable diversity and with features never seen before."
