In order to miniaturize nanoelectronic circuitry and architectures, organizing the nanoelectronic components in deliberately designed complex patterns is desired. Bio-mimetic self-assembly is a possible approach to achieve this goal. Bio-macromolecules can serve as scaffolds to template the nanoelectronic components into patterns with precise periodicity and complexity. In this review, we will summarize the progress in organizing metallic nanoparticles templated by DNA scaffolds into one and two dimensional architectures.
