The DNA-aided engineering of nanomaterials has enabled the preparation of various DNA-based nanoscale devices and materials and discrete nanoscale geometric objects. 5] Furthermore, it has been shown that DNA can be designed to organize into extended arrays, such as 2D and 3D crystals. Branching points have so far been incorporated in these materials by including DNA four-way (“Holliday”) junctions or by covalent modification. 5, 9] The recent description of a designed 3D crystal obtained by… CONTINUE READING
