Harvard Medical School’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute team have constructed a self-assembling nanodevice from single-stranded DNA using a design principal known as tensegrity to lash double-helix struts together with single-stranded DNA. The strands interconnect the struts and pull the entire piece into a taught shape resembling a twisting prism. The structures can further be programmed to change shape on call, as well as move of their own accord.
