First autonomous cargo-sorting DNA nanobot developed.


Robots are an important type of molecular machine which automatically carry out complex nanomechanical tasks. DNA molecules are excellent materials for building molecular robots, because their geometric, thermodynamic, and kinetic properties are well understood and highly programmable. So far, the development of DNA nanobots has been limited to simple functions.  Now, a study from researchers at Caltech develops a DNA robot which performs a
