The use of biochemical molecular recognition principles for the assembly of nanoscale inorganic building blocks into macroscopic functional materials constitutes a new frontier in science. This article details efforts pertaining to the use of sequence-specific DNA hybridization events and novel inorganic surface coordination chemistry to control the formation of both two- and three-dimensional functional architectures.
