Making Structures with DNA (video) Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption Wyss Institute researchers have developed a method for building complex nanostructures out of short synthetic strands of DNA. Called single-stranded tiles (SSTs), these interlocking DNA "building blocks" can be programmed to assemble themselves into precisely designed shapes.
