Bio-Nanotechnology Breakthrough: Building “Nanomotors” and “Nanostructures” with RNA

Left: Human red blood cells = 7 micrometers (microns). Middle: Influenza viruses = about 80-100 nanometers.  Right: SARS coronavirus = 100 nanometers.  1 micrometer (micron) = 1 / millionth of a meter (39.37 inches) 1 nanometer = 1 / billionth of a meter
