DNA scaffolds and glue: New tools for nanotechnology engineering

You're probably familiar with the role of DNA as the blueprint for making every protein on the planet and passing genetic information from one generation to the next. But researchers have shown that the twisted ladder molecule made of complementary matching strands can also perform a number of decidedly non-biological construction jobs: serving as a scaffold and programmable 'glue' for linking up nanoparticles.
