Back Cover: DNA Origami Nanopatterning on Chemically Modified Graphene (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 4/2012)

DNA origami structures are assembled from one long circular DNA strand precisely folded by lots of designed DNA staples. These ultrafine biomolecular nanopatterns are selectively and safely adsorbed on chemically modified graphene sheets. In their Communication on page 912 ff., M. Lieberman, S. O. Kim, and co-workers show that chemically modified graphene is an excellent substrate material for sublithographic bimolecular nanopatterning.
