Programmable Plastics (DUPLEX)

Start date: 01 Mar 2013, End date: 28 Feb 2019,

The unique properties of nucleic acids have made them the material of choice for complex nanofabrication. High fidelity formation of duplexes via non-covalent interactions between complementary sequences provides a straightforward approach to molecular programming of multicomponent self-assembly processes. The structure of the nucleic acid backbone and bases can be changed without destroying these ...
