BIOMOD is a bio-molecular design competition that provides undergraduates an opportunity to systematically engineer biomolecules on the nanometer scale. Focus areas may include—but are not limited to—biomolecular robotics, biomolecular logic and computing, and structural bionanotechnology. It is funded by the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, with additional support from corporate sponsors.

In this interview, Shawn Douglas, Biomod's organizing director answers the following questions:
1. What is Biomod?
2. What is DNA nanotechnology, and how does DNA origami fit in?
3. Why DNA nanotechnology?
4. What is expected of the teams?
5. What new designs an we expect to see?
