Assembly of DNA Nano-Objects Speeds up (1 of 1) (image) American Association for the Advancement of Science Share Print E-Mail Caption Complex nanoscale shapes can form rapidly from DNA molecules in a protein-like folding process at constant temperature. The image illustrates schematically, with the help of 3-D prints, the trajectory from unfolded states to the folded state as seen in time-resolved gel-electrophoretic experiments. This image relates to a paper that appeared in the Dec. 14, 2012, issue of Science, published by AAAS. The paper, by Jean-Philippe J. Sobczak at Technische Universität München in Munich, Germany, and colleagues was titled, "Rapid Folding of DNA into Nanoscale Shapes at Constant Temperature."
