Abstract

The combination of branched DNA molecules and 'sticky' ends creates a powerful molecular assembly kit for structural DNA nanotechnology. Polyhedra, complex topological objects, a nanomechanical device and two-dimensional arrays with programmable surface features have already been produced in this way. Future applications range from macromolecular crystallography and new materials to molecular electronics and DNA-based computation.
