DNA-based nanotechnology: Construction, mechanics, and electronics (dnatec)

Cover
Start: 11 May 2009 | End: 15 May 2009
Location: Dresden, Germany
Organized by: G. Cuniberti, M. Mertig, H. Yan

The meeting aims at summarizing progress and enhancing exchange of ideas and understanding in the cross-disciplinary field of DNA-based nanotechnology by bringing under the same roof experts from different fields of physics, biophysics, chemistry, biology, and materials science. Future research directions in this young field will profit from combined theoretical and experimental efforts towards nano-scale construction of complex DNA-based architectures and functional devices. The Dresden meeting will cover these systems and various aspects including structural DNA nanotechnology, DNA-based machinery, DNA mechanics and electronics. A structured workshop divided into sessions with key speakers from each subfield and supplemented by discussion groups on controversial and timely topics is planned. The core activities will be preceded by an introductory day with more basic presentations at a tutorial level to guide the student and young-postdoc participants. A poster session and contributed talks will also provide the opportunity of research dissemination to a large number of participants.
