Drug Delivery via DNA Cages

the MPR take:

A team from Harvard's Wyss Institute have created the most complex and largest self-assembling DNA structures that could be used to coat medications to be delivered to tissues or detect molecules produced by abnormal tissue to diagnose diseases. These DNA structures, or cages, could also be altered with chemical hooks to "hang" proteins. The DNA cages were visualized using a new DNA-based microscopy method that captured the first 3D images of single DNA structures in solution.
