DNA self-assembly: prospectus and its future application

Review

Abstract

The field of DNA nanotechnology has grown rapidly in the past 10 years, with many baby steps and exciting breakthroughs. DNA has recently been emerged as a versatile material for constructing artificial molecular structures and strategy which has excellent intrinsic characteristics, including programmability, self-organization, molecular recognition, and molecular-scale structuring properties, makes it an attractive nanoscale building material. Excitingly, DNA can be considered as a natural candidate for molecular self-assembly. In this review, we have focused on the methods for DNA self assembling patterns within the molecular fabric of DNA lattices.
