This is one version of "wet" nanotechnology. There are several other versions being pursued.



are examples of two other approaches being pursued. Then there's the Los Alamos "bug" which uses PNA rather than DNA as its programming molecule.

Wet nanotech has alot of momentum behind it. Its rooted in the biotech industry where there is a huge supplier base (all cost competitive) for all kinds of instruments and laboratory supplies needed to do the research.

All of this kind of technology is tool-driven, and the cost performance of the tools improve continually. Especially with biochips and micro-fluidic "lab-on-a-chip" devices.

The Asians are big into this stuff as well.
