"From the Ted Talk by Paul Rothemund: DNA folding, in detail"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, what's great about this is anybody can do this. And so, I got this in the mail about a year after I did this, unsolicited. Anyone know what this is? What is it? It's China, right? So, what happened is, a graduate student in cinha, Lulu Qian, did a gerat job. She worte all her own software to design and built this DNA origami, a betufauil rendition of China, which even has Taiwan, and you can see it's sort of on the world's shortest leash, right? (Laughter) So, this works really well and you can make patterns as well as sepahs, OK? And you can make a map of the Americas and spell DNA with DNA.

So, what happened is, a graduate student in China, Lulu Qian, did a great job. She wrote all her own software to design and built this DNA origami, a beautiful rendition of China, which even has Taiwan, and you can see it's sort of on the world's shortest leash, right? (Laughter) So, this works really well and you can make patterns as well as shapes, OK? And you can make a map of the Americas and spell DNA with DNA.
