DNA Origami

How DNA Origami Manipulates Proteins For Bioengineering

Physical manipulation of microscopic structures and proteins allows scientists to alter cell biology.

For most, this small scale approach provides a vital link between natural responses in cells and medical intervention. This approach could open up new opportunities in cell biology, biotechnology, and medication.

At the heart of this is DNA origami. This recent technique in the creation of hybrid structures takes DNA and proteins to form new, more beneficial components. It is the work of Florian Praetorius and Prof. Hendrik Dietz of the Technical University of Munich and is sure to replicate elsewhere.… Read More

Nanorobots – A New Advancement In DNA Technology

Deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly known as DNA is a molecule that carries genetic information in human beings as well as other living things.

This information is used to influence the growth, development, functioning and even reproduction of living things. This makes DNA one of the most interesting molecules in nature.… Read More

DNA And Nanotechnology

New DNA Nanotechnology particle Testing Technique Developed

Diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease and HIV/Aids and even inherited disorders such as cystic fibrosis and hemochromatosis all have one thing in common; they have no known cures. However, with gene therapy, this may soon change. DNA Nanotechnology is used in gene therapy in a process whose purpose is to treat or prevent a disease using genes.

More specifically, the process delivers therapeutic nucleic acid polymers into the cells of a patient. Indeed, gene therapy has evolved immensely over the years. In 2016 for example, scientists made significant progress using gene therapy for increasing the resistance of uninfected cells to HIV/Aids and even “snipping out” infected cells.
