Nadrian Seeman Shares $1M Nanotech Prize

Congratulations to Ned Seeman, who is sharing the $1 million Kavli Prize in nanoscience with IBM's Don Eigler, who was behind the team that made the IBM logo in atoms. Seeman was awarded the prize for the discovery of structural DNA nanotechnology, in 1979 according to the Kavli website. Seeman has given presentations on DNA nanotechnology at the Foresight Institute conferences and at last year's Singularity Summit, and recently made a major breakthrough in nanotechnology with a nanoscale assembly line.

I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Seeman at a Center for Responsible Nanotechnology conference in Tuscon in 2007. He was skeptical about the idea of achieving molecular manufacturing within the next couple decades.

Will macroscale molecular manufacturing be achieved by a structural DNA route, the "Tattoo Needle" architecture, the foldamer route, the Waldo route, the diamondoid route, or something else? That is the question all the cool kids are asking.
