Nano World: DNA meets nanotechnology
DNA molecules are best known for carrying the genetic instructions for all organisms, but 25 years ago nucleic-acid-nanotechnology pioneer Ned Seeman of New York University began envisioning another realm of applications for them -- as construction blocks, perhaps even in machines.
The result: "DNA machines have been built, as a route to nanorobotics," Seeman told UPI's Nano World. "Nanofacturing of new and revolutionary materials is going to result from some of these devices."
