Happy 1st Birthday!
We took our first steps in Nov. 2019. Thank you to all the kind and generous scientists who supported us on the way!

From DNA nanopores to synthetic cells and contractile actin networks. Guess what's next!
Happy holidays from the whole Biophysical Engineering group. P.S.: This microfluidic droplet-based Christmas tree can produce energy by transforming light into ATP!
That's how we make origami with DNA: A long piece of single-stranded DNA is folded by short DNA 'staples'.
