Home > Press > Leading cfaed scientists organize international workshop about DNA-based microchips

Abstract:
Dresden's scientists are internationally renowned in the field of biomimetic material synthesis which uses biological principles such as molecular recognition and self-assembling for the tailor-made synthesis of new materials and structures. Therefore, the international workshop ‘DNA-Based Nanotechnology: Digital Chemistry (DNATEC14)' hosted by the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems is well received within the global community.

Leading cfaed scientists organize international workshop about DNA-based microchips

Dresden, Germany | Posted on May 1st, 2014

The workshop takes place from 5 to 9 Mai and will be organized with the help of the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) of TU Dresden and Kurt Schwabe Institute for Measure and Sensor Technology e.V. Meinsberg.

"This promising future nanotechnology uses the genetic material carrier Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) as a basic element for future electronic devices and sensors. We expect that the efficiency of the traditional silicon-based semiconductor technologies cannot be furthered in about ten years", workshop coordinator Prof. Michael Mertig, also Leader of the cfaed research Path 'Biomolecular-Assembled Circuits' (BAC), explains. "Hence, such innovative approaches are very interesting."

About one hundred scientists are expected to attend the conference. The lecturers visit from the USA, France, Denmark, Netherlands, India, Italy, Japan, UK, Israel, and Germany. Amongst them are Ned Seeman of New York University, the founder of the research area of structured DNA-Nanotechnology, and Hiroshi Sugiyama of Kyoto University, who uses the so-called DNA-origami structures in a fascinating way for the analysis of DNA-protein-interdependencies.

The workshop focuses on nano-photonic structures for the future use in microelectronics, the use of artificial DNA-structures in biology, new sensor mechanisms and functional systems. For example, the internationally renowned DNA-expert Prof. Itamar Willner of The Hebrew University in Jerusalem will talk about DNA-based functional materials. The Israeli scientist is also ‘Grand Professor' of cfaed and, in this role, is coaching young highly-talented scientists, e.g., cfaed research group leader Dr. Thorsten-Lars Schmidt.

Dr. Schmidt will present a polyamide-based glue for double-stranded DNA and enzymatically produced oligonucleotides for structural DNA nanotechnology. Further talks will be held by cluster coordinator Prof. Gerhard Fettweis, Technische Universität Dresden and Prof. Frank Jülicher of cfaed partner and host of the workshop Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems.

The Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) is the Cluster of Excellence for Microelectronics of Technische Universität Dresden. This research platform unites eleven partner institutes with about 300 scientists who are working in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, material science, physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics.

About Technische Universitaet Dresden
The Technical University of Dresden is one of the top universities in Germany and Europe: strong in research and considered first-rate with respect to the range and the quality of the study programmes it offers, it is also closely interconnected with culture, business and society. As a modern comprehensive, multi-discipline university and with its 14 faculties it has a broad and diverse scientific spectrum that only few other universities in Germany are able to match. It is Saxony’s largest university. The large campus family of the TU Dresden is comprised of 37,000 students and approximately 7,900 employees, about 4,400 of whom are budget-funded – among them 524 professors – and another roughly 3,500 who work as grant-supported employees.
With its Institutional Strategy or Zukunftskonzept in German - “The Synergetic University”, the Cluster of Excellence “cfaed – Centre for Advancing Electronics Dresden” and the two follow-up proposals, “Centre for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD)” and “Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB)”, the TU Dresden on 15 June 2012 achieved the title of University of Excellence in the first phase of the Excellence Initiative launched by the German federal and state governments. This means that it is one of Germany’s eleven universities of excellence.
