A team at the Wyss Institute has developed a DNA nanotechnology-based method that allows for repeated, non-destructive recording of uniquely barcoded molecular pairings, rendering a detailed view of their components and geometries. In the future, the approach could help researchers understand how changes in molecular complexes control biological processes in living cells. The study is published in Nature Communications. This image is from an animation that explains how Auto-cycling Proximity Recording works. #DNA #Science #Harvard #Technology
