(1998 Seeman) Review of DNA nanotechnology

Discusses the the construction of specific geometrical and topological targets from DNA, with goals including the use of DNA molecules to scaffold the assembly of other molecules, with applications to crystallography and memory-device construction. Achievements include the construction of branched DNA molecules with the connectivities of a cube and a truncated octahedron. A search for stiff components suggests the use of DNA double crossover molecules.
