Nucleic Acid Nanostructures: Bottom-Up Control of Geometry on the Nanoscale.

Abstract

DNA may seem an unlikely molecule from which to build nanostructures, but this is not correct. The specificity of interaction that enables DNA to function so successfully as genetic material also enables its use as a smart molecule for construction on the nanoscale. The key to using DNA for this purpose is the design of stable branched molecules, which… (More)
