DNA Nanotechnology

Nanoscale materials are not exclusively synthetic materials. Every living thing on Earth consists of nanoscale materials, such as cellular components, DNA, proteins, and so on. DNA in particular is an interesting nanoscale biopolymer, as not only is it the “molecule of life”, but has many other interesting properties making themselves useful in many nonbiological applications. Chapter 12 summarizes the research done by the nanotechnology community, including DNA-based electronics and metallic nanowire formation.
