Morphing DNA makes motor

DNA molecules are prime candidates for helping humans make microscopic machines because they have a long history of assembling things on the molecular scale. Researchers at New York University have taken a significant step forward in being able to instruct artificial DNA molecules to move in specific ways with a method that allows certain portions of DNA to bind to each other, and then release. This reversible binding method allows for control of the shape of a DNA molecule, or machine
