Scientists program proteins to pair exactly

Technique paves the way for the creation of protein nanomachines and for engineering of new cell functions Proteins designed in the lab can now zip together in much the same way that DNA molecules zip up to form a double helix. The technique could enable the design of protein nanomachines that can potentially help diagnose … More Scientists program proteins to pair exactly

World’s smallest tic-tac-toe game board made with DNA

The technology could be used to develop more sophisticated nanomachines with reconfigurable parts Researchers have developed new dynamic DNA origami technology. It was just about a year ago that Caltech scientists in the laboratory of Lulu Qian, assistant professor of bioengineering, announced they had used a technique known as DNA origami to create tiles that … More World’s smallest tic-tac-toe game board made with DNA
