What's not to be nice about this?

Excellent work.

“Strong interactions like this have great potential to be used in bio- and nano-technology in fabricating new devices that might for example, be used for early detection of diseases,” Professor Dixon said.

I don't know about early detection but new lock-and-key molecules could prove useful in targeted drug delivery.

But when it comes from the other direction, the strand separation near TUS leads to one of the DNA bases flipping over and inserting itself like a key in a lock in a perfectly shaped pocket on the surface of TUS. TUS is locked onto the DNA and this stops the replisome snowplough in its tracks.”

Haw, haw! Locks, keys, pockets, snowploughs and snowplows are all designed!

It talks about some tantalizing potential applications but where is the actual technological progress? Did I miss it in the article?

This discovery illustrates once again how the quest for fundamental knowledge can result in unexpected technological progress.
