A team of U.S. and South Korean scientists have developed a three-dimensional nanocrystal structure using deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) strands, a leading international research journal said on Thursday.
The discovery, which was selected as the cover story of the latest issue of Nature magazine, is noteworthy for using DNA as a blueprint and building tool to allow the self-assembly of very small metal-based material into certain shapes, scientists said.
DNA holds all genetic codes used in the development and functioning of all living cells, but it has usually been reserved for biotech work. Nanotechnology refers to the research and development of materials that exist on the scale of one-billionth of a meter.
