World smallest Mona Lisa created using DNA origami
07 December 2017 Current Affairs: Caltech scientists have made the world's smallest recreation of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the size of a bacterium, out of DNA.

The technique, dubbed DNA origami, enabled scientists to fold DNA into desired self-assembling structures using 64 tiles, which were 100 nanometers wide.

The team also created a life-sized portrait of a bacterium and a bacterium-sized portrait of a rooster.
