Creating DNA-based robots is not new. However, the new study is different, as the developed bots can behave in almost the same way as people with real DNA. It has its own metabolism, uses energy, develops, grows and dies.
 
Scientists have created a self-organizing robot using 55 nucleotide units, which are the building blocks of human DNA. They repeated these blocks several times to create a chain, informs enovosty.com/news.
The team also introduced artificial metabolism into synthetic DNA, which should allow the biomaterial not only to use energy for fuel, but also to recover.
True, when they presented a special liquid that serves as an energy source, new threads appeared in the material.
Despite the presence of basic life qualities, such as metabolism and regeneration, scientists still consider these robots, similar to real ones, to be primitive.

“We are introducing a completely new, realistic concept of materials based on our own artificial metabolism. We are not creating something alive, but we are creating materials that are much more realistic than ever before, ”said Dan Luo, one of the authors.
They believe, however, that their results can only advance robotics. These materials can also help in the detection of pathogenic microorganisms and the creation of hybrid nanomaterials.
