Structural DNA Nanotechnology
PREREQUISITES: CHEM-UA 226 OR CHEM-UA 228 OR CHEM-UA 881.
This is a course on a new field of research, which has been growing exponentially since the start of the twenty first century. The field deals primarily with the control of molecular structure on the nanometer scale through programming it by means of DNA secondary structures. The course will consist of a series of lectures by the instructor and then a series of presentations of recent papers in the field. A nascent textbook will be used as appropriate.
