Our DNA nanoturbine work is featured in New Scientist!
A nice article by Karmela Padavic-Callaghan in New Scientist "Tiny nanoturbine is an autonomous machine smaller than most bacteria"
A turbine only a few dozen nanometres in size made from DNA rotates in salty water without having to be pushed which makes it a tiny autonomous machine. It could be for speeding up chemical reactions or transporting particles inside cells (by Karmela Padavic-Callaghan, New Scientist, 2 July 2022)
