Séminaire de Tommaso Bellini

Exploring soft matter with DNA

Exploring soft matter with DNA

Prof. Tommaso Bellini

University of Milan, Italy

The combination of solubility, coded pairing and adjustable flexibility make
DNA a unique polymer for designing highly-controlled self-assembled complex
nanostructures and novel materials. The same tools can be exploited to produce
DNA-based systems enabling the exploration of challenging topics in soft
matter physics. In the talk I will exemplify this approach by describing
experiments and results in which DNA assembly was used to study living
polymerization, liquid crystal ordering, the templating of chemical
reactions, and phase behavior and gelation transition of low-valence
colloidal particles.
