DNA Nanotechnology and its Biological Applications

  title={DNA Nanotechnology and its Biological Applications},
  author={John H. Reif and Thomas H. LaBean},
This Chapter overviews the emerging research area of DNA nanostructures and biomolecular devices. We discuss work involving the use of synthetic DNA to self-assemble DNA nanostructure devices. Recently, there have been a series of quite astonishing experimental results which have taken the technology from a state of intriguing possibilities into demonstrated capabilities of quickly increasing scale. We particularly emphasize molecular devices that are programmable and autonomous. By… CONTINUE READING
