Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


DNA origami gets large: A double-layer DNA-origami tile with two orthogonal domains underwent self-assembly into well-ordered two-dimensional DNA arrays with edge dimensions of 2-3 μm (see schematic representation and AFM image). This size is likely to be large enough to connect bottom-up methods of patterning with top-down approaches.
