    About This Project

    Our bodies are full of molecular nanorobots that create and sustain life. Now we can design and manufacture nanorobots made out of DNA using the same rules that produce the double helix.

    For a few pennies we manufacture billions of disease detecting DNA nanorobots in a drop of salt water. This new technology can be coupled to smart devices to diagnose disease in resource poor environments and provide point of care emergency medical service.
    Blast off!
