Gene genie


There’s a lot of cool things you can do with DNA – much better than the stuff I see in CSI on an almost nightly basis…

The last week or so has brought us a few more examples, including a self-assembled DNA bipyramid in yesterday’s JACS ASAP from Turberfield’s group at Oxford. This follows hot on the heels of a review article he wrote with Jonathan Bath that appears in our current issue of Nature Nanotechnology – free access here.

In addition, Ned Seeman from NYU – who was featured in our Reactions series last week – has a paper in yesterday’s Nano Lett. ASAP on DNA nanotubes. Finally, there’s a DNA catenane paper from last week’s JACS ASAP, that uses everyone’s favourite – click chemistry.
