Researchers have created a programmable DNA thermometer that is 20,000x smaller than a human hair. One of the main advantages of using DNA to engineer molecular thermometers is that DNA chemistry is relatively simple and programmable. So, the research team has created various DNA structures that can fold and unfold at specifically defined temperatures.
