Talk Title: Towards Nanoscale Devices Self-Assembled with DNA
Greg Tikhomirov is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley with a background in chemistry, bioengineering, medicine, and nanotechnology. He has a longstanding dream to engineer life-like artificial systems, motivated by the realization that incomprehensible natural complexity arises from comprehensible fundamental laws. Ti Lab at Berkeley will pursue design and fabrication of devices with atomic precision by combining the strengths of rational top-down engineering and bottom-up biomolecular assembly. A key goal is to adopt the powerful but still proof-of-concept self-assembly approaches of DNA nanotechnology to engineer new, useful devices.
We design and fabricate devices with atomic precision by combining the strengths of rational top-down engineering and bottom-up biomolecular assembly. The former enabled the digital revolution. The latter enabled the entire biological world including us. Ti lab seeks to hybridize these two approaches.
