Abstract

DNA is a promising construction material for the supramolecular 'bottom-up' engineering of artificial nanostructured devices. The use of DNA for the selective positioning of macromolecular components, the fabrication of nanostructured DNA scaffolds, as well as the DNA-templated synthesis of nanometer-sized and mesoscopic complexes, consisting of inorganic and bioorganic compounds, are exciting areas of current research.
