In recent years, a number of research groups have begun developing nanofabrication methods based on DNA self-assembly. DNA is an extraordinarily versatile material for designing nano-architectural motifs, due in large part to its programmable G-C and A-T base pairing into well-defined secondary structures. Today, DNA nanotechnology has evolved into a unique interdisciplinary field, between chemistry, physics, computer science, biology and materials science. This review surveys some recent research mostly based on the authors and their collaborators' work.
