About this book

This volume details protocols for computer-assisted design and experimental characterization of RNA nanostructures. Chapters guide readers through RNA nanotechnology, design and characterization of RNA nanostructures, assessment of immunology of nanomaterials, biosensing and drug delivery, various biomedical applications, and delivery approaches for therapeutic RNA nanoparticles. Written in the format of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, each chapter includes an introduction to the topic, lists necessary materials and reagents, includes tips on troubleshooting and known pitfalls, and step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols. 

  Authoritative and cutting-edge, RNA Nanostructures: Design, Characterization, and Applications aims to address essential topics and concerns in the growing field of RNA nanotechnology.
