Future Trends in DNA-based Nanotechnology

International Workshop
29 May - 2 June 2017

Nucleic acid-based nanotechnology employing basic biological principles such as molecular recognition and self-assembly for advanced materials synthesis is now a pioneering field. The meeting will reflect the enormous progress in this rapidly growing cross-disciplinary field, and, by bringing experts from different scientific fields together, will enhance the exchange of ideas and understanding.

Topics include

  • Designer nucleic acid nanoarchitectures
  • DNA-directed materials design
  • DNA-directed photonic structures and sensor aplications
  • Cellular and in-vivo DNA nanotechnology
  • Advanced imaging techniques and structure modeling for nucleic acid nanostructures
  • Dynamic DNA nanotechnology
  • DNA nanotechnology for programmable molecular circuitry, intracellular biocomputation and synthetic biology
