DNA helps nanoparticles crystallise

Abstract:
Two papers in Nature have each shown a simple way to build designer crystals from nanoparticles, using DNA as 'glue'. Both methods show promise as a cheap way of mass-producing complex materials like photonic crystals.

In one of the articles[1], Oleg Gang and co-workers from Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, US, showed that DNA bound to nanoparticles influences the interactions of one nanoparticle on another - thereby determining the bonding structure of the nanoparticle crystal.
