Researchers from Brigham Young University found how to shape customized segments of DNA into tiny letters that spell "BYU." This new method of DNA origami will appear in the aptly titled journal Nano Letters. The letters are about 100 nanometers in size. That's roughly a billion times smaller than the block Y on the mountain overlooking BYU's campus and 1/1000 the width of a human hair. The team's larger pursuit is to design nanoscale shapes for electrical circuitry and make tiny "“ yet...
