Building with RNA; Nanotech X Prize; Closing remarks
Christine Peterson: Last talk: Luc Jaeger of UCSB explaining “Sculpting Bio-materials by Programmable Assembly of RNA”. He has been building super-molecular RNA assemblies.
Before the closing remarks, we have a short announcement about the “X Prize for Nanotech” challenge grant from Marshall Burns. There will be a Nanotech X Prize Summit in early 2006. Current need is for sponsorship — first sponsor has made a challenge grant, issued by Mark Sims of Nanorex. Mark is referring to Engines of Creation as inspiration, and describing the history of the first $10 million X Prize, and saying that we need that excitement for nanotech.
