Science Journals

AAAS publishes six respected peer-reviewed journals. Science, the premier global science weekly; Science Signaling, the leading journal of cell signaling and regulatory biology; Science Translational Medicine, integrating medicine, engineering and science to promote human health; Science Advances, an innovative and high-quality open access journal for all the sciences; Science Immunology, research articles that report critical advances in all areas of immunological research, including important new tools and techniques; and Science Robotics, original, peer-reviewed, science- or engineering-based research articles that advance the field of robotics.
Science Robotics

A DASH of bioengineering.A defining feature of living organisms is the ability to use environmental molecules for growth, movement, and other dynamic processes. Hamada et al. made precursor DNA that, when added to a microfluidic device containing pre-patterned boundaries and obstacles, could assemble into polymers, then micrometer-scale hydrogels and last mesoscale patterns and shapes. The DASH (DNA-based Assembly and Synthesis of Hierarchical) materials could be generated and degenerated autonomously and synchronously, allowing further programming to enable locomotion similar to slime mold movement and even “racing” of side-by-side formations.
