This submission page enables the prediction of the 3D equilibrium structure of programmed DNA assemblies that are designed to reside on a honeycomb [3] or square [5] lattice using the drawing programĀ caDNAno [6]. The caDNAno file preparation, input, and CanDo finite element modeling procedure is demonstrated in thisĀ tutorial.
