Papers of Note
Mix the right two proteins with the right building blocks and you can make multifunctional nanoparticles that can, for example, target, tag and kill cancer cells.
Protein-assisted self-assembly of multifunctional nanoparticles, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
Apply a little magnetic levitation and you can make a three-dimensional cell cultures that are more lifelike stand-ins for living tissue in testing new drugs and growing replacement organs.
Three-dimensional tissue culture based on magnetic cell levitation, Nature Nanotechnology
Combine the right types of DNA molecules and you can make nanotubes with built-in cargo holds for carrying nanoparticles and that can be opened with additional DNA strands to release their cargoes.
Loading and selective release of cargo in DNA nanotubes with longitudinal variation, Nature Chemistry
