CF Nanobiotechnology received a new flow-box
Funding provided by the CIISB4HEALTH project (MEYS CR, OP VVV CZ 02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_013/0001776) supports acquisition of a new equipment and upgrades of the existing instrumentation of CIISB in the period 2017-2021. Among the first arrivals belongs a new flowbox for the CF Nanobiotechnology, which will allow preparation of special samples for subsequent AFM studies. This will help to deal with either potentially moderately danger microbial agents (BSL cat. 2) or cell tissue samples where the sterility is an issue for long-term running imaging and biomechanical mapping experiments.

Nadrian C. Seeman: DNA, not Merely the Secret of Life
We build branched DNA species that can be joined using Watson-Crick base pairing to produce N-connected objects and lattices. We have used ligation to construct DNA topological targets, such as knots, polyhedral catenanes, Borromean rings and a Solomon's knot.
