Twist and torque in the cellular nanocosmos: Diez group detects biophysical forces of molecular motors in 3D
B CUBE supports "Dresden Nanosaurs"
With great help from B CUBE scientists, TUD Master students of "Molecular Bioengineering", "Nanobiophysics" and other disciplines designed a stunning nano-biomolecular system for the BIOMOD competition announced by WYSS Institute, Boston.
BIOMOD is a design competition in which undergraduate teams compete to master control of biomolecules on the nanometer scale. Focus areas may include—but are not limited to—biomolecular robotics, biomolecular logic and computing, and structural bionanotechnology. Students conceive and execute projects during the summer and then gather in Boston in November to present their work and win awards.
As one of the few participating European teams, Dresden Nanosaurs propose a novel biological tethering system based on the technologies of DNA origami and vesicular transport.News Ticker
