Caption: In the background, a 3-D print showing one of 19 designs for DNA nanotechnology objects that were used to study folding and unfolding dynamics; below, a 3-D print showing clear, sharp peaks in the time-resolved folding and unfolding of the object at constant temperature. Recent results show that the time it takes to produce such objects can be cut from days to minutes, with yields near 100 percent.
