With a sheet thickness nearly five times thinner than a strand of DNA, graphene is the thinnest and strongest nanomaterial.

A team of researchers from Zhejiang University, Xi'an Jiaotong University, and Monash University has developed a method to bind multiple strands of graphene oxide into a self-assembling yarn.

Published in the journal "Science," the group has described the process and possible uses, comparing the discovery to how biological systems work.

Borrowing terms from physics, the team compared the proces...
