Researchers find 'Goldilocks' of DNA self-assembly

Researchers from North Carolina State University have found a way to optimize the development of DNA self-assembling materials, which hold promise for technologies ranging from drug delivery to molecular sensors. The key to the advance is the discovery of the 'Goldilocks' length for DNA strands used in self-assembly - not too long, not too short, but just right.
