More Fun with DNA Bricks

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: Some time ago, I worked with Tihamer Toth-Fejel on a nanofactory-related NIAC grant. We came up with a concept of using small molecular building blocks (MBBs) to construct simple machines... that could grab the MBBs from solution and assemble them to create machines... thus leading to exponential manufacturing.
