Meeting in the middle: Well-organized arrays of self-assembled functional DNA nanotubes can be constructed by combining bottom-up and top-down methods. Such DNA-nanotube arrays allow the construction of arrays of quantum dots, proteins, and DNA targets (see picture; green: DNA nanotube, red: streptavidin-quantum dot conjugate; scale bar: 20 μm). (Figure Presented).
