Software, Data & Toolkits

caDNAno is open-source software for the design of three-dimensional DNA origami nanostructures. It was written with the goal of providing a simple and user-friendly interface to facilitate a process that can be complex and error-prone.


DNA Nanoswitches
A team of researchers led by Wyss Associate Faculty member Wesley Wong, Ph.D. have created inexpensive tools for probing molecular interactions. Called, DNA “nanoswitches”, the new nanoscale tools are made from strands of DNA that report how molecules behave, enabling biological measurements to be made by almost anyone, using only commonly available laboratory reagents.



Join the Wyss Institute Popup Challenge, a design contest based around the laminate design techniques outlined at popupCAD is a program which makes it incredibly easy to make multi-layer design files. popupCAD designs generally end up being cut out by a laser cutter, 3D printer, or CNC Mill.


PhysioNet offers free access to large collections of recorded physiologic signals and related open-source software. The PhysioNet web site is a public service of the PhysioNet Resource funded by the National Institutes of Health's NIBIB and NIGMS.
