|A 'nano-robot' built entirely from DNA to explore cell processes
by Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale
Constructing a tiny robot from DNA and using it to study cell processes invisible to the naked eye.... You would be forgiven for thinking it is science fiction, but it is in fact the subject of serious research by scientists from Inserm, CNRS and Université de Montpellier at the Structural Biology Center in Montpellier. This highly innovative "nano-robot" should enable closer study of the mechanical forces applied at microscopic levels, which are crucial for many biological and pathological processes. It is described in a new study published in Nature Communications.
