Researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute have coaxed single strands of DNA to fit together like Lego bricks and form scores of complex three-dimensional shapes, including a teeny-tiny space shuttle. The technique, described in the journal Science, adds a new dimension to molecular construction and should help open the way for nanoscale medical and electronic devices.
