Molecular self-assembly
Molecular self-assembly is the process by which molecules adopt a defined arrangement without guidance or management from an outside source. There are two types of self-assembly. These are intramolec...

Researchers Edit Plant DNA Using Mechanism Evolved In Bacteria
Researchers at the Univ. of Georgia have used a gene-editing tool known as CRISPR/Cas to modify the genome of a tree species for the first time. Their research, published online in New Phytologist, op...
Nanoparticle-Coated Bacteria Can Deliver Cancer Vaccine
Marking an important step in the development of immunotherapy cancer treatment, scientists have demonstrated that nanoparticle-coated bacteria can effectively deliver an oral DNA vaccine that stimulat...
MIT can now use E. coli DNA tape recorders for living and replicating data storage
DNA microchips can now encode arbitrary digital information at a density of over at 700 terabytes per gram. That number could be pushed much higher, theoretically even as high as 455 exabytes per gram...
Supramolecular assembly
Another lecture in IHMC's award winning lecture series. http://www.ihmc.us Just as an interest in art history and topology took Fraser Stoddart into the mole...
Monolayer
A monolayer is a single, closely packed layer of atoms, molecules, or cells. In some cases it is referred to as a Self-assembled monolayer.
A Langmuir monolayer or insoluble monolayer is a one-mol...
Self-assembled monolayer
Self-assembled monolayers (SAM) of organic molecules are molecular assemblies formed spontaneously on surfaces by adsorption and are organized into more or less large ordered domains. In some cases m...

Bilayer
A bilayer is a double layer of closely packed atoms or molecules.The properties of bilayers are often studied in condensed matter physics, particularly in the context of semiconductor devices, where t...
Supramolecular assembly
A supramolecular assembly or "supermolecule" is a well defined complex of molecules held together by noncovalent bonds. While a supramolecular assembly can be simply composed of two molecules (e.g., a...

DNA machine
A DNA machine is a molecular machine constructed from DNA. Research into DNA machines was pioneered in the late 1980s by Nadrian Seeman and co-workers from New York University. DNA is used because of...
Bionanotechnology
Nanobiotechnology, bionanotechnology, and nanobiology are terms that refer to the intersection of nanotechnology and biology. Given that the subject is one that has only emerged very recently, bionano...
