Abstract:
Inspired by nature, researchers have started to use the self-assembling feature of DNA to design nanotubes and other objects that have useful electrical and mechanical properties.

DNA Origami Used to Create 3-D Nanostructures

Arlington, VA | Posted on April 14th, 2011

As a member of the National Science Foundation's Materials World Network, Hao Yan and his team at Arizona State University recently developed a new strategy to build nanostructures using DNA as a scaffold for assembly. The research is published in the April 15 issue of the journal Science.
