DNA origami joins forces with molecular motors to build nanoscale machines

For decades, researchers have chased ways to study biological machines. Every mechanical movement — from contracting a muscle to replicating DNA — relies on molecular motors that take near-undetectable steps. Trying to see them move is like trying to watch a soccer game taking place on the moon. Now, with DNA origami helicopters, researchers have … More DNA origami joins forces with molecular motors to build nanoscale machines
