In thispost for online science exhibition, we will learn about examples of DNA systems powered by antibodies presented by Lorena Baranda Pellejero from Ricci’s lab at University of Rome Tor Vergata.
Still following us? Then you should be about to become an expert in DNA nanotechnology! Well, maybe that was a bit too optimistic, but still, you can’t deny you already have an insight on the field thanks to Yash; you’re able to see in your laptop screen DNA structures whose sizes are 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair thanks to Joakim; and also, you witnessed the controlled movement of these little things thanks to Rafa.
In the second part of our online science exhibition, Nestor Sampedro from Ebbe Andersen’s lab at Aarhus University will exhibit images about the 6-helix bundle.
Hello everyone! I am Néstor Sampedro, you may remember me from other blog posts like Meet Néstor Sampedro…
Things on the nanoscale are, by definition, quite small. This poses a problem in the sense that it can be tricky to get a good look at them. Microscopes can only get you so far; although microscopy techniques are constantly improving it is still much easier (and significantly cheaper) to simulate your design at whatever level of detail you require, especially if you want to see things moving around.
