DNA Nanotech

Gene Expression: Origami at the Molecular Level

In essense, it is molecular origami...

This type of research is just the beginning of learning how to reprogram the proteins that go wrong and cause diseases such as Alzheimer's and cancer.

And last month, a team at the Danish National Research Foundation built a DNA cube with a lid that can be opened, closed and then locked with a DNA key.

How cool is that?

I'm late today. I find this so encouraging and amazing. I'm glad you shared it. I rely on your brains to feed mine. ;-)

I saw Sham Wow guy and nearly ran the other way and I am now laughing inappropriately at his photo on my side bar... as my boss interviews a woman just a few feet away!
