DNA Bricks -- Molecular Animation

The nanofabrication technique, called “DNA-brick self-assembly,” uses short, synthetic strands of DNA that work like interlocking Lego® bricks. It capitalizes on the ability to program DNA to form into predesigned shapes thanks to the underlying "recipe" of DNA base pairs. This animation accurately shows how the DNA strands self assemble to build a structure. [Animation created by Digizyme for the Wyss Institute.]
