Robust triangular RNA brick adds to RNA nanotechnology toolkit

The complex molecular recognition code of RNA offers RNA nanotechnology a greater variety of 3D structures and functions than are present in DNA nanotechnology, but the RNA structures can be fragile. New RNA triangles that resist boiling solve this problem.

RNA nanotechnology – fewer structures in living cells than in test tubes

A study of RNA structures actually present in cells reveals that cells spend energy restricting thermodynamically driven RNA folding so that fewer RNA structures are found in cells than in test tubes.

Novel RNA structural motifs expand tool kit for RNA nanotechnology

New computational methods to explore the rapidly expanding collection of high resolution three-dimensional RNA structures reveal new RNA structural motifs, identifying additional building blocks for complex RNA nanostructures.

RNA CAD tool for synthetic biology may facilitate RNA nanotechnology
