Abstract

Intrinsic programmability and other properties of DNA allow its use for bottom-up self-assembly and as a top-down photolithographic material. These capabilities provide considerable potential for many DNA technology applications. However, one limitation of UV patterning of DNA is that hybridization of complementary DNA sequences can only be carried out in areas not exposed to UV. Such UV single-write methods restrict the full potential for programmed DNA self-assembly. We now demonstrate a DNA double-write process that uses UV to pattern a uniquely designed DNA write material, which produces two distinct binding identities for hybridizing two different complementary DNA sequences.
