Paper Abstract

Remote acceleration of a molecular recognition will open an avenue for the control of various biological functions. Here, we have developed a new principle for the rapid macroscopic assembly based on the light-induced molecular recognition via nanoparticles. Remarkably, as an application of this principle, we have demonstrated the submillimetre network formation triggered by light-induced hybridization of zmol-level DNA within a few minutes. This finding will be used for the rapid and highly sensitive genetic screening without fluorescent labeling.
