DNA octahedron array while you're waiting

The next simulation of the diamond system won't be done for another couple days, so here is something I am working on. It is still a little rough. It is an array of DNA octahedrons. The array is being used to position silsesquioxanes. If I knew how to pronounce that, I would give you a phonetic spelling. H/T to Tee for them though; perhaps he will read this and leave a guide to pronunciation in a comment or email. I believe a similar use is what originally inspired Ned Seeman in get into DNA nanotechnology way back when.

Addendum: you can read a little more on the silsesquioxanes here
