We all make mistakes! The specific removal of error particles in nanomaterial assemblies is achieved by using a DNA-zyme as a proofreading and error-removal unit (see picture of a DNA-templated gold nanoparticle assembly). Parallels can be drawn with the proofreading and error-removal process in biology. A and B = gold nanoparticles attached to DNA sequences; B′ = error particle. (Figure Presented).
