Displacement

Nanocrafter

Nanocrafter is a recently launched game about building nanoscale devices using small pieces of DNA. In the last decade, synthetic biologists have begun using the DNA mechanism of strand displacement, a predictable reaction occurring between three or more pieces of DNA, to produce everything from nanoscale computational circuits to mobile walkers capable of transporting payloads over DNA tracks
