Mixing two types of nanoparticle triggers structure change

Mixing two different types of cylindrical nanoparticles causes them to reorganize into smaller spherical nanoparticles. A mechanism to release drugs only inside cells that internalize both types?

Simple nanotechnology modification of alumina surface discourages bacteria

A simple method of producing nanoporous alumina surface discourages bacteria from attaching and forming biofilms, with potential applications in medicine, dentistry, and food processing.

Structural DNA nanotechnology with programmed motions

Scaffolded DNA origami is combined with hinges of single- or double-stranded DNA to built simple machines parts that have been combined to program simple to complex motions.

Swarms of DNA nanorobots execute complex tasks in living animal

Combinations of different types of DNA nanorobots, implementing different logic gates, work together to tag a specific type of cell in a living cockroach depending on the presence or absence of two protein signals.

New software reveals more molecular machine structures

New software makes it possible to generate 3D structures of proteins without artificially incorporating metal atoms in the proteins, making it possible to study many molecular machines using data that could not previously be analyzed.

Computational framework for structural DNA nanotechnology

A more general computational framework predicts the structures of 2D and 3D-curved DNA nanostructures impossible to predict using previously available computational methods. May lead to 3D-printing DNA nanostructures?

Large, open protein cages designed and built

Design principles have been developed and tested to construct novel synthetic protein monomers that can self-assemble into large, open protein cages for potential use in vaccines and drug delivery.

Novel multifunctional nanoparticle for diagnosis and therapy

A nanoparticle that self-assembles from porphyrin, cholic acid, amino acids, and polyethylene glycol is a promising vehicle for delivering both imaging agents and cancer drugs to tumors.

TED talk: A 30-Year History of the Future

Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT media lab and the One Laptop Per Child program, gave a TED talk in March 2014 titled A 30-Year History of the Future. Click to access the talk or the TEDBlog article discussing the talk. Negroponte highlights some cutting-edge technological developments of the past that had been openly scorned… Continue reading TED talk: A 30-Year History of the Future
