DNA ‘organises itself’ on silicon

Triangular "DNA origami" were made to assemble on etched carbon and silicon - Photo credit: IBM/BBCResearchers reporting in Nature Nanotechnology have now shown how to get engineered "DNA origami" to self-organise on silicon.

The origami can be designed to serve as a scaffold for electronic components just six billionths of a metre apart.

Making chips with components closer together leads to smaller devices and faster computers.
