Can nanotechnology change DNA?

Question

Can nanotechnology like mini robots for instance change our DNA in our body in the future? Would you see this being a therapy of the future?”

Answer

Stefanie - Well, if you think about proteins working in the cell, they are in some way nano robots that do their job. There is still a very long way to go, but yes, maybe.

Chris - So, you're saying that the mini machines in the forms of enzymes that we already have in our cells doing these jobs, they're like robots anyway. Stefanie - Yes, so if you could use them and make them do what you plan to do then, yes.
