Nanoscale Construction With DNA: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar: Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems | August 30 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Prof. Shawn Douglas, UC San Francisco, Cellular & Molecular Pharmacology

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

The programmability of DNA makes it an attractive material for constructing intricate nanoscale shapes.

One method for creating these structures is DNA origami, in which a multiple-kilobase single-stranded 'scaffold' is folded into a custom nanoscale shape by interacting with hundreds of short oligonucleotide 'staple' strands.

I will talk about our efforts to realize demand-meeting applications of this method, including our recent development of nanoscale devices to mimic cell‐signaling stimulation carried out by our own immune systems.
