In this article published in ACS NANO, a DNA origami structure is shown capable of clustering DR5. When this cluster inducing origami is added to cancer cells, it is shown to cause apoptosis and cell death. As much as 80% of some cell types went into apoptosis with one version of this DNA origami structure.

The SEQrets of sequencing.
Hej again! Igor here, back for another talk about the exciting world of sequencing. In my science exhibition, I showed you a little around the equipment that we use for sequencing and a tiny sneak peek into how the technique works.
In this lecture we will dive a little deeper into this rich world of sequencing by giving you a general outline of how these techniques work and what you can do with them.
The colorful world of sequencing!
In this post for our Online Science Exhibition, PhD student Igor Baars from The Hogberg lab at KI exhibits the colorful world of sequencing.
Meet Igor Baars
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Igor Baars, one of the 15 early stage researchers in the DNA-robotics network. I am working in Björn Högberg’s group at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
