Self-Assembled DNA Nanostructures and DNA Devices


Book Section

© 2012 CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. The particular molecular-scale constructs that are the topic of this chapter are known as DNA nanostructures. As will be explained, DNA nanostructures have some unique advantages among nanostructures: they are relatively easy to design, fairly predictable in their geometric structures, and have been experimentally implemented in a growing number of labs around the world. They are constructed primarily of synthetic DNA.
