Abstract

Self-assembling DNA nanostructures based on rationally designed DNA branch junction molecules has recently led to the construction of patterned supramolecular structures with increased complexities. An intrinsic value of DNA tiles and patterns lies in their utility as molecular pegboard for deterministic positioning of molecules or particles with accurate distance and architectural control. This review will discuss the state-of-art developments in self-assembled DNA nanostructural system. Biomedical aspects of information guided DNA nanostructures will also be summarized. We illustrate both the use of simple DNA artworks for sensing, computation, drug delivery and the application of more complex DNA architectures as scaffolds for the construction of protein and nanoparticle arrays.
