Scientists Make Breakthrough in Micro-Robotics Using DNA

  • Alt

A joint team of scientists from Ewha Womans University and the University of Pennsylvania have developed technology using artificial DNA that could operate shape-changing micro-robots, announced the National Research Foundation of Korea Monday.

Shape-changing micro-robots are made from flexible materials, including high molecule polymers or nanoparticles, functioning in response to specific physical or chemical signals like temperature or light.
