DNA, the stuff of life, may very well also pack quite the jolt for engineers trying to advance the development of tiny, low-cost electronic devices. Much like flipping your light switch at home — only on a scale 1,000 times smaller than a human hair — a team has now developed the first controllable DNA switch to regulate the flow of electricity within a single, atomic-sized molecule.
