DNA Art (2)

An American scientist uses DNA to make objects that are one thousand times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. His technique could have huge implications for computing and medicine. This also allows the creation of nanoscale artwork.

DNA origami

Nanoscale folding of DNA, also known as DNA origami, is a process which allows researchers to create arbitrary two-dimensional shapes at the nanoscale using DNA. Novel designs have included the smiley face and a coarse map of North America. It was pioneered by Paul Rothemund at California Institute of Technology.
