Playing DNA Twister: By using asymmetric DNA building blocks, self-assembled DNA nanocages that are chiral on the nanoscale have been designed. The resulting DNA nanocages have been characterized with a variety of methods. Such chiral control could be useful for tuning the photonic/optical properties of DNA-templated nanostructures.
