DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

... are small enough to enter a diseased cell, either killing it from within or sending out a signal to identify it. But making the particles is notoriously difficult and time-consuming. The nanoparticle system used by Baker's lab is based on dendrimers, star-like synthetic polymers that can carry a vast array...
