Abstract:

We have been able to make the necessary compounds and nanoparticles in the synthetic portion of the proposal. We were able, for the first time, to successfully link DNA to organic polymers and study their interaction. Further, we have been able to manipulate the resulting structures to incorporate gold nanoparticles. We are in the process of applying these building blocks to build up a 3-D structure using DNA-recognition and DPN-based patterning.
