DNA Bricks: Molecular Animation

Previous Next

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. Animation created by Digizyme for the Wyss Institute.
