French flag paper published in Nature Chemistry

A team in UPMC, in collaboration with a former LIMMS researchers (Yannick Rondelez), has just demonstrated how to program spatial motifs with simple biomolecular tools. Building on the PEN DNA toolbox developed in LIMMS , the team has demonstrated a French flag pattern, i.e. a biochemical program that segments a spatial region into three stripes according to an exogenous chemical gradient provided by the users.
