DNA Nano-Assembly can be scaled up and also assemble inorganic materials

An 18 page presentation on Nano-Assembly using DNA bricks by Peng Yin of Harvard.

This is a plan for scaling up DNA Brick Nanoassembly and to enable the use of DNA nanotechnology as scaffolding for other inorganic molecular nanatechnology.

DNA can already be assembled into many structures as shown below

Scaling up DNA Bricks
Hierarchical assembly
NanoAssembler: iterative, solid phase synthesis of geometry

DNA can become scaffolds for functional materials
Fluorescent barcodes for multiplexed imaging
DNA “nanorobot” for targeted delivery
Chiral gold arrays for “Carving light”
