Chemists Use DNA To Build the World’s Tiniest Antenna – “Like a Two-Way Radio”

SciTechDaily

Researchers at Université de Montréal have created a nanoantenna to monitor the motions of proteins. Reported last week in Nature Methods, the device is a new method to monitor the structural change of proteins over time – and may go a long way to helping scientists better understand natural and human-designed nanotechnologies.

“The results are so exciting that we are currently working on setting up a start-up company to commercialize and make this nanoantenna available to most researchers and the pharmaceutical industry,” said UdeM chemistry professor Alexis Vallée-Bélisle, the study’s senior author.
