Nanocages in the lab and in the computer: How DNA-based dendrimers transport nanoparticles

How to create nanocages, i.e., robust and stable objects with regular voids and tunable properties? Short segments of DNA molecules are perfect candidates for the controllable design of novel complex structures. Physicists investigated methodologies to synthesize DNA-based dendrimers in the lab and to predict their behavior using detailed computer simulations. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181018141220.htm
