Watson Lecture
DNA Origami: Folded DNA as a Building Material for Molecular Devices

Resource available online.

Earnest C. Watson lecture featuring Research Professor of Bioengineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences, and Computation and Neural Systems, Paul Rothemund. Rothemund describes how complex DNA structures are designed via computer, synthesized using simple "kitchen chemistry," and studied with atomic force microscopes a thousand times more powerful than standard light microscopes. he also explores how researchers around the world are applying DNA origami, from cancer-killing nanorobots, to exquisite light sources that will power quantum computers.
