Researchers have devised a pair of computer architectures that would be built from self-assembling DNA.
Computers assembled by DNA have the potential to be extremely small, fast and inexpensive, and would consume very little power.
The researchers’ architectures call for single-stranded artificial DNA molecules that have silicon nanorods attached to their ends to assemble into circuit patterns. The DNA junctions between rods are then plated with metal to… read more
