DNA nanotubes: An elastic mechanical perspective

Abstract:

DNA nanotubes are a versatile nanoscale structural element that have seen an increasingly wide range of uses, such as appendages to facilitate the propulsion of magnetic beads and as potential drug carriers that can help us achieve targeted drug delivery especially in the case of cancer. To enable their use for such applications, it is vital to understand the elastic properties and mechanical limits of such nanotubes.

Simulations and modelling have the potential to play a particula...
