Robots are an important type of molecular machine capable of automatically carrying out complex nanomechanical tasks. DNA molecules are excellent materials for building molecular robots as their geometric, thermodynamic, and … Continue Reading First autonomous cargo-sorting DNA nanobot developed.
Nanomachines made from synthetic DNA motors have the potential to mimic natural protein motors in cells, however, the operation of synthetic DNA motors in living corpuscles has not yet been … Continue Reading Autonomous nanomachines perform biologic functions in live cells.
Researchers at the University of California have shown that a micromotor fueled by stomach acid can take a bubble-powered ride inside a mouse. These tiny motors, each about one-fifth the … Continue Reading Stomach acid-powered nanobots get their first test in a living animal.
