Hijacking a viral method of replicating circular genomes, ball-of-yarn-like DNA clews are used to transport the protein and guide RNA molecules needed for gene editing into the cell nucleus.
DNA strands decorating cell membranes like 'Velcro' program the adhesion of cells to other cells or to extracellular matrices to build tiny tissue models.
Adding nanotechnology-based optoelectronic sensors to human cells cultured on a chip keeps the cells healthy long enough to replace animal testing with a human liver-on-a-chip.

Linking together small DNAs to build more diverse DNA nanostructures GalleryBionanotechnology, Future Medicine, Molecular Electronics, Molecular Nanotechnology, Nano, Nanobiotechnology, Nanodot, Nanomedicine, Nanotech, Nanotechnology, Research
Using the enzyme DNA ligase and small DNA strands as building blocks provides an efficient and less expensive path to a large variety of DNA scaffolds and other structures.
Even without special designs and coatings to promote stability, simple DNA nanomachines can survive in human serum and blood for hours or even days, much longer than expected from previous studies using bovine serum, which has more damaging nucleases than does human serum.
