  Penn Engineers Make Nanoscale 'Muscles' Powered by DNA
  Chemical and Biomedical Engineering professors John Crocker and Daeyeon Lee have collaborated with chemists in the School of Arts & Sciences to make films that bend, curl and even flip over when exposed to custom DNA sequences. Comprised of layers of gold nanoparticles linked by single-stranded DNA, those links become longer when their corresponding sequences bind to them. Targeting layers on one side of the film or the other allows the researchers to control the flexing of these nanoscale "muscles."
