This is the final report for the support of the 21st International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming DNA21,successfully held at Harvard University, August 17-21, 2015. DNA21 carried on the tradition of the annual conference, serving as an excellent stage for scientists with diverse backgrounds to discuss the most recent and high-quality experimental and theoretical results. Topics discussed in depth at this years meeting include information storage and biological applications of DNA systems, biomolecular chemical reaction networks, applications of self-assembled DNA nanostructures, tile self-assembly and computation, principles and models of self-assembly, and strand displacement and biomolecular circuits. The fund provided by ARO was used for reimbursement of travel expenses for invited speakers. The conference hosted a total of 21 invited speakers, including 6 plenary, 12 nano day, and 3 tutorial speakers, who were composed of leaders and rising stars in DNA computing and molecular programming and related fields. The speakers shared their insights and recent results, providing fruitful inspirations and stimulating lively discussions throughout the period.
