We ensure that you will find the meeting presentations pioneering, awe-inspiring, and beyond the imagination!
Nanotechnology has breached beyond imaginable possibilities and the idea of DNA nanotechnology has led to the explosion of new knowledge. RNA is unique in nanoscale fabrication due to its amazing diversity of function and structure. RNA nanoparticles can be fabricated with a level of simplicity characteristic of DNA while possessing versatile structure and catalytic function similar to that of proteins. A large variety of single stranded loops are suitable for inter- and intra-molecular interactions serving as mounting dovetails in self-assembly without the need for external linking dowels. Novel properties of RNA nanoparticles have been explored for treatment and detection of diseases and various other realms.
