An easy-to-prepare mini-scaffold for DNA origami

Author affiliations


The DNA origami strategy for assembling designed supramolecular complexes requires ssDNA as a scaffold strand. A system is described that was designed approximately one third the length of the M13 bacteriophage genome for ease of ssDNA production. Folding of the 2404-base ssDNA scaffold into a variety of origami shapes with high assembly yields is demonstrated.
