DNA pyramids make their debut

Abstract:
A simple method to create robust DNA "pyramids" that self-assemble in seconds has been invented by physicists in the UK. Each side of the tetrahedral pyramid is made up of a double helix of DNA. The pyramids can then be joined together to make larger 3D nanostructures on which to build molecular electronic circuits and tiny containers for drug delivery (Science 310 1661).
