DNA Supramolecular Assemblies

5–6 May 2004, Avignon, France

The DNA Supramolecular Assemblies Workshop will be held 5–6 May 2004 in Avignon, France. This workshop aims to explore fundamental science questions related to DNA supramolecular assemblies.

This workshop is supported by IUPAC as an innovative conference on New Directions in Chemistry—for more information on IUPAC sponsorship and financial support opportunities see www.iupac.org/symposia.

Innovation and application of supramolecular assemblies have reached impressive new heights. For example, organizations involving nucleic acids have been used for drugs or DNA delivery, and can also be efficient as sensors for detection purposes. It is a period of great promise in the area of self-assemblies and supramolecular systems involving DNA, RNA, or more generally, systems capable of information storage. If recent scientific progress is a fair indicator, the future promises remarkable new developments in molecular recognition elements with a vast array of applications. Thus, it is timely to bring together leading academic scientists to discuss the present and future of research.

Major topics at the meeting will include the synthesis and physico-chemical of DNA supramolecular assemblies, nucleic acid transport and gene delivery, and DNA sensors.
The participants will be introduced to colleagues in the field who may be able to aid in particular difficulties, spark new ideas, and refocus efforts. Long-term collaborations between scientists having mutual interests, yet complimentary capabilities, may be established. In short, there is great potential for research enhancements.

Participation and accommodations are limited, and it is recommended that registration and travel arrangements be finalized early.
