We are interested in an interdisciplinary field between systems engineering (especially robotics) and nano-bio engineering. Varieties of systems, from the nanoscale to macroscale, have been developed using DNA Nanoengineering and Molecular Programming as core technologies with a wide range of nano- and micro-scale technologies, such as microfluidics. 

Machines & Robots

A DNA-based machine with emergent locomotion behavior. The movement is represented by an overlay of snapshots at different timepoints (from purple to green).

Material systems

Macroscale: DNA Hydrogel - Ceramic hybrid component (PolyBrick 3.0)
