Dr. Gerdon is thinking about new adventures with DNA origami by starting with paper and a few folds. Tabs and pockets hold the six pieces of paper together to make this cube. Over 200 synthetic strands of DNA base-pair to M13 phage DNA to hold this DNA origami tile together and hopefully we’ll see it in action in the lab in the coming weeks!
This summer of research has been a challenge and has been a lot of fun! We are so glad to be back to chemistry research, learning, struggling, and learning some more to come up with completely amazing, new experiments. The group – Amanda, Esther, Grace, Julia, Luz, and Rylie – has worked really hard and we have great new data to share.
