DNA Backbone Assists Nanocrystal Formation

Abstract:
Recently, researchers from University of Rochester Medical Center, Scripps Research Institute, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology published a paper in Nature Materials describing the first time a lattice was made using a combination of nano-sized metal particles (gold in this case) and organic materials (viral particles). The gold and viral phage capsid particles repel each other, but by stragetically placing them on DNA strands that attract one another, a rigid crystal structure can be created, with potential uses in optical computing and telecommunications.
