In this research project, we aim to develop efficient methods to assemble nanoscale devices for use as sensors or circuits. The structures are based on self-assembled DNA templates which will be partially metallized or will have inorganic nanoscale objects tethered to them.
See this site for more detailed information on how these structures are formed.
