single molecule science

nanobots

UNSW researchers have overcome a major design challenge on the path to controlling the dimensions of so-called DNA nanobots – structures that assemble themselves from DNA components.

Immune T cells swarm to tumours by following a chemical gradient left by other cancer-killing T cells, a pre-clinical study by UNSW Sydney medical researchers has shown.
