DNA Nanotechnology

DNA nanotechnology is a branch of nanotechnology that specializes in the design and manufacture of artificial nucleic acid structures for technological uses. The same properties that make nucleic acids useful as the carrier of genetic information in living cells serve it well as an non-biological engineering material: due to the specific base pairing rules of nucleic acids, only portions of nucleic acid strands with complementary base sequences bind together to form strong, rigid nucleic acid double helix molecules.
