I’m from Thailand and I started my PhD here in September 2013. My research focuses on exploring the use of sequence-defined polymers in higher-order assembly of DNA nanostructures. These polymers can be synthesized to have different types of supramolecular interactions. By decorating individual nanostructures with specific polymers, the interactions other than DNA base pairing can be introduced to guide the assembly process. We hope this approach could be useful to expand functionality and dynamic behavior in the design of DNA higher-order structures.
