The fuzzy line between biology and materials science: Using DNA to build new materials

By Eileen De Guire / October 18, 2011

NYU scientists have developed artificial structures consisting of triple helix molecules containing three DNA double helices that can self-replicate. In the above illustration, two BTX domains are paired by two lateral connections (another two existing connections are not shown). The cross-section view shows two of the four helices that are formed by the lateral cohesive…
