AU: RNA-based nanorobotic devices for intracellular sensing and actuation

In this project, we will develop RNA-based nanorobotic devices that can be produced in cells to sense, compute and act depending on intracellular signals. We will attempt to interface the RNA nanorobotics devices with cellular signaling pathways and to communicate the cellular state to DNA-based robotic devices outside the cell through DNA-based nanopores. During the project, research visits are planned to Technische Universität München (TUM) and University of Oxford to collaborate on developing crucial elements of the project.
