Businessweek on self assembly & molecular manufacturing

Getting Molecules To Do The Work surveys half a dozen nanotechnology projects involving self-assembly that are bringing an "era of nano-manufacturing". Although many obstacles remain, the survey concludes optimistically:

Still, "the field is moving very fast," says NYU's Seeman. Only a year ago, he says, he showed his students a top-10 list of major challenges nanotechnology faced. Today, three are already resolved. At this pace, he adds, self-assembly and molecular manufacturing will come into commercial use sooner rather than later.

    Seeman told me he's misquoted

    I emailed Ned Seeman to ask whether he'd really said that about molecular manufacturing coming into use sooner rather than later. He told me that sentence was not true. He didn't clarify further.

    I also asked to see the top 10 list. It's actually a list of challenges for structural DNA nanotech.
