Using DNA's unique lock-and-key mode of chemical bonding, a research team at the University of Minnesota is proposing a molecular-circuit assembly technique that they believe will be compatible with silicon-based electronics. A patterned silicon substrate, complete with interconnection pads, carries DNA-coded "tiles" that serve as breadboards for nanocomponents. The components are measured in angstroms, enabling densities of 10 trillion bits per square centimeter. In the prototype system, the na
