A single-walled carbon nanotube self-suspended network of exceptionally low density is formed by DNA-streptavidin-assisted assembly where the DNA complex serves as a cross-shaped point connector. The macroscopic nanotube aerogel is conductive and luminescent and presents an excellent scaffold for subsequent functionalization. For example, platinum and titanium dioxide coating of the nanotube network is demonstrated.
