Nanothermomether Built with DNA

Illustration: istockphotos   Researchers from the University of Montreal have designed a DNA thermometer 20000 times smaller than a human hair. The scientists took advantage of DNA’s natural changes in compaction when subject to temperature variations. The DNA thermometer, which measures temperature at the nanoscale, serves as a proof of concept for building new nanodevices. […]
