Who's on First?

Abstract:
There are multiple paths leading to molecular nanotechnology. Two of the more visible are chemistry and physics.

The chemists at U. Michigan (Choi & Baker) have recently combined dendrimers and DNA to allow directed assembly of more complex structures. This is an extension of our previous discussion of DNA based directed assembly methods. A memorable quote is by Baker, "So it's like having a shelf full of Tinker Toys."
