DNA origami

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    I'm working on a project in the field of DNA origami and need links to research papers and study content for the trapping processes and folding processes. Can anyone help?

    ............... Not the sort of help i expected. Incase this post was ignored because other fresh posts coming, this is just to bring it up again. Please, I need help.

    I wrote a paper on DNA topology for genetics a couple years ago, so I can offer some references. Not sure how applicable they are to what you're looking for, but it's something. 5 and 9 should describe the folding processes and how they construct them.
