Engineers tap DNA to create 'lifelike' machines

Ithaca NY (SPX) Apr 15, 2019 Tapping into the unique nature of DNA, Cornell engineers have created simple machines constructed of biomaterials with properties of living things. Using what they call DASH (DNA-based Assembly and Synthesis of Hierarchical) materials, engineers constructed a DNA material with capabilities of metabolism, in addition to self-assembly and organization - three key traits of life. "We ar
