- Our micrometer-sized DNA ciliate has a capacity for possessing many nano-devices.
- If we modify the material of the DNA ciliate body (polystyrene beads) to liposome, we can put nano-devices not only on the surface but also inside the body of the DNA ciliate.
- Trough this change, DNA ciliate will be a highly functional molecular robot where many nano-devices are cooperating. As an example of the function, DNA ciliate can carry many nanometer-sized devices at a time. We opened the door functional molecular robot.
