Ultrasonic waves can be used to convert native DNA molecules into DNA nanospheres. This sonochemical nanospherization could be used as a method of protecting DNA from degradation in harsh environments. Due to its as a carrier of genetic information, DNA spheres could be used as a biocompatible material for the delivery of the genetic information to the cells.
