Caltech Scientists Use DNA Tiles To Play Tic-Tac-Toe at the Nanoscale

Tuesday January 1, 2019. 09:02 PM , from Slashdot
An anonymous reader shares a report: An innovation at Caltech allows scientists to play a virtual 'tic-tac-toe' game with individual strands of DNA, providing a new way to experiment with DNA sequencing and create custom patterns. According to ArsTechnica, the technique was dubbed 'DNA Origami [paper; PDF]' by its creator Lulu Qian and is considered by Caltech fellows to be a 'huge advancement' in the field of nanotechnology (manipulation of particles on a minute, atomic scale).
