DNA origami surpasses important thresholds

A great success for IGSSE team Biomat05-PSN: The team jointly published a Nature article earlier this December!

Hendrik Dietz, Florian Praetorius, Benjamin Kick, Dirk Weuster-Botz and collaborators have not only broken out of the nanometer realm to build larger objects, but have also cut the production costs a thousand-fold. These innovations open a whole new frontier for the technology.
