Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Figure Presented) Tiles go down the tube: A novel method for the preparation of DNA tubes by using the DNA tile system with the assistance of a four-way-branched DNA-porphyrin connector is described (see schematic representation). The detailed DNA tube structures were characterized by atomic force microscopy.
