Dynamic DNA nanotechnology

The programmable and reliable hybridization of DNA strands has enabled the preparation of a wide variety of structures. This Review discusses how, in addition to these static assemblies, the process of displacing — and ultimately replacing — strands also makes possible the construction of dynamic systems such as logic gates and autonomous walkers.
