Very interesting article on DNA nanorobots. Could be a great tool unless used in harmful ways. Kind of scary.


Deep inside a beaker in a humming chemistry lab in New York City, a spindly spider crawls over a jumble of origami. It’s not the colored-paper kind of origami, but rather is made of precisely designed segments of DNA. For that matter, so is the spider.

This spider wasn’t built to spin webs or eat bugs. It’s a DNA nanorobot, a primitive version of the machines that may someday perform tasks too small for humans to do.

Thanks for this! Amazing, really. Nanobots made out of DNA. There is just so much to learn. And I also like that they call it a spider. A cute DNA spider

Impressive, wish this was further along then it is.

I sure would appreciate a fix / cure for type 1 diabetis.


Thanks for the post, OP, certainly informative. S&F!
