Biology is the nanotechnology that works. In a typical cell, matter is precisely manipulated at the nanoscale, components are assembled into large molecular machines and structures that move, reconfigure and adapt. Using ideas from DNA nanotechnology, we're trying to engineer similarly complex, functional nanoscale devices. We self-assemble DNA into complex circuits, templates and spatial patterns for controlled delivery and sensing.
