Structural DNA DVD


Product Details

Structural DNA begins by highlighting the four stages of nanotechnology:

  • static nanostructures
  • active nanodevices
  • nanomachines and simple nanosystems
  • productive nanosystems

This foundation provides the context to explore the four primary approaches to building productive nanosystems. Two are top-down approaches:

  • Diamondoid Mechanosynthesis
  • Patterned Atomic Layer Epitaxy

and two are bottom-up approaches:

  • Bis-peptide Synthesis
  • Structural DNA

Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights video series, in this program viewers will then be introduced to researchers at Nanorex, Inc., Bloomfield Hills, MI, and Duke University, Durham, NC. They'll discover how these researchers are harnessing the structural and informational components of DNA to develop methods of altering molecules under programmable control to generate self-replicating productive nanosystems.

Length: 29 minutes
