Latest Molecular models of DNA Stories
Building on earlier work exploring the complex choreography by which intricate cellular proteins interact with and copy DNA prior to cell division, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and collaborators have captured a key step-molecular images showing how the enzyme that unwinds the DNA double helix gets drawn to and wrapped around its target.
In a new discovery that represents a major step in solving a critical design challenge, Arizona State University Professor Hao Yan has led a research team to produce a wide variety of 2-D and 3-D structures that push the boundaries of the burgeoning field of DNA nanotechnology.
Two major barriers to the advancement of DNA nanotechnology beyond the research lab have been knocked down.
A group of Japanese researchers claim to have created artificial DNA. This breakthrough could greatly impact the realm of nano-scale computing, leading to the ultimate 'green' computer and endless possibilities for new biotechnology applications.
