DNA nanotechnology is used by researchers to build materials and tiny controllable machines. DNA nanotech structures are designed using the same base-pairing mechanism that keeps your DNA together in cells. Join us to learn more about how to design DNA nanostars and nanotortoises. You’ll also be able to build bracelets and keyrings that have complementary sequences to your friends’ and family’s.
