Nanoengineering with DNA

Nadrian C. Seeman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The goals of this work include the construction of periodic multiply-connected networks of DNA. The aims of these DNA constructions include using them as scaffolding to build periodic macromolecular arrays for diffraction purposes, as well as directing the assembly of molecular electronic devices. There are well-characterized molecular transformations of DNA that make nano-scale machines feasible to build in this molecular context. These materials are likely to be useful for understanding crystallization processes and structure-function relationships.
