Self-assembly of DNA into nanoscale three-dimensional shapes

Hi - 

Wired turned me on to the 3-D nanoassembly work in Harvard's Shih Lab.


Bjorn Hogberg posts the Nature (2009) preprint, "Self-assembly of DNA into nanoscale three-dimensional shapes."

Here is an illustration from the Wired piece:



Scale: the horizontal white bar is 20 nm long.

If you visit the Shih Lab site, hyperlinked above, you'll find a link to a nanoscale CAD program...
