DNA Nanoswitches: “Lab-on-a-Molecule” Drug Discovery
The Lab-on-a-Molecule platform leverages the Wyss Institute’s DNA nanotechnology technology for the high-throughput, low-cost screening of a wide range of chemical and biologic compounds to enable the discovery of first-in-class therapeutics for various conditions.
DNA Nanotechnology Tools: From Design to Applications
A suite of diverse, multifunctional DNA nanotechnological tools with unique capabilities and potential for a broad range of clinical and biomedical research areas. Our DNA nanotechnology devices were engineered to overcome specific bottlenecks in the development of new therapies and diagnostics, and to help further our understanding of molecular structures.
Multiplexed Molecular Force Spectroscopy
Programmable DNA nanoswitches, invented at the Wyss Institute, can now be used in combination with a benchtop Centrifuge Force Microscope (CFM) as a highly reliable tool to observe thousands of individual molecules and their responses to mechanical forces in parallel. By analyzing the responses of single molecules under conditions where they experience such forces, it is possible...
Video/AnimationDNA Nanoswitch CalipersThe world’s tiniest ruler for biomolecules has been created by researchers at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, and Boston Children’s Hospital. DNA Nanoswitch Calipers can measure very small peptides to better understand their structure and function, and enable them to be quickly identified in mixed samples. These insights could lead to...
Audio/PodcastDisruptive: Molecular RoboticsHow can DNA be programmed to build novel structures, devices, and robots? We have taken our understanding of DNA to another level, beginning to take advantage of some of DNA’s properties that have served nature so well, but in ways nature itself may have never pursued. Humans can now use DNA as a medium for...
Video/AnimationDNA NanoswitchesGel electrophoresis, a common laboratory process, sorts DNA or other small proteins by size and shape using electrical currents to move molecules through small pores in gel. The process can be combined with novel DNA nanoswitches, developed by Wyss Associate Faculty member Wesley Wong, to allow for the simple and inexpensive investigation of life’s most...
