Drag-and-drop DNA builds cancer-combating drug

A drug has been developed to combat a lethal brain cancer using a drag-and-drop DNA-self assembly technique.

A team from Parabon Nanolabs built the drug up, molecule by molecule, using a computer program called inSçquio. It combines computer-aided-design principles with nanoscale fabrication processes.

In a press release, the US national science foundation, which funded the research, said that the approach “could drastically reduce the time required to create and test medications”.
