On Quora? Hit me up here and I'll follow you. Can't wait until I can just import all of G+ into there...

Woah.
 
So simple, yet so complex. "Douglas's team chose a clam-like cage, so that the nanorobot could hold a drug dose inside until it was time to deliver it. To ensure that the cage only opened when it found its target, the team fitted it with two locks. Each lock is a strand of DNA called an aptamer that can be designed to recognise a specific molecule. When the aptamer and target molecule connect, the DNA strand unzips and the clam opens up, releasing its payload."

I love Quora, but I really dislike how I can't get a feed of new questions in all of the topics I follow. I really have no desire to answer questions from months ago.

Am I missing something?

Introduction
Hi! I'm Erik, founder of Gravytrain, an outsourced content shop located in Vancouver, Canada. 

It's our goal to help alleviate entrepreneurs and small-to-medium sized business owners of the burdens of consistent high-quality written content generation, including blogging, articles, website content, guest blog posts, press releases, and more.

If you're interested in a unique take on SEO, social media, content marketing and other stuff, please feel free to add me to one of your Circles and I'll do my best to keep you up to date.

I'm also following my life goal of getting a proper degree in health sciences, and I'm currently studying Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia. With some hard work and a little luck, I'll make it through and get that degree!
