Abstract

Herein we demonstrate that flexible DNA architectures with larger cavities can be efficiently constructed by first assembling a relatively more rigid DNA tile architecture and subsequently subtracting a center tile through fuel strand displacement; such structures are otherwise difficult to obtain if the center tile is missing in the beginning, proving a new strategy for DNA self-assembly.
