X’s and O’s The world’s smallest game of tic-tac-toe could have a big impact on the future of nanotechnology. Researchers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a new...
OOPS! SORRY, SQUID. When researchers want to study fish and crustaceans, it’s pretty easy to collect a sample — tow a net behind a boat and you’re bound to capture a few. But collecting delicate...
Researchers have created a fully autonomous DNA nanobot system that kills cancerous tumors by cutting off their blood supply. If these nanobots are effective in human trials, they could prove to be...
A new study with mice shows how nanorobots can safely shrink cancerous tumors by cutting off their blood supply without harming nearby healthy cells.
Scientists from Arizona State and Harvard have created new DNA structures using one long, thin strand of DNA. Called DNA Origami, these structures have the potential to lead to the creation of...
Scientists are increasingly using DNA to build structures at the tiniest scales. Now, researchers from CalTech have used DNA to create a new type of robot designed to move and lift molecular cargo.
Researchers have been able to create tiny structures for conducting electricity by using DNA and gold plating. This new nanostructure could be the foundation of future electronics as soon as...
Scientists designed injectable nanobots and are testing them on cockroaches. The technology controls the release of drugs needed for the brain using EEG controlled electromagnets. The technique...
Researchers have designed a new algorithm that automates the manipulation and sculpting of DNA into different shapes—a process known as DNA origami.
Using new 3-D printing techniques, scientists have found a way to create nanoscale DNA structures.
