DNA scheme builds computers

Abstract:
Researchers from Duke University, Rambus Inc. and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have devised a pair of computer architectures that would be built from self-assembling DNA.

The researchers' architectures call for single-stranded artificial DNA molecules that have silicon nanorods attached to their ends to assemble into circuit patterns. The DNA junctions between rods are then plated with metal to form the circuitry.
