The RNA-world-theory is one possible explanation of how life on earth has evolved. In this context it is of high interest to search for molecular systems, capable of self-organization into structures with increasing complexity. We have engineered a simple catalytic...

Over the past two decades, the structure and mechanism of catalytic RNA have been extensively studied; now ribozymes are understood well enough to turn them into useful tools. After we have demonstrated the twin ribozyme mediated insertion of additional nucleotides...

Light-harvesting complexes, one of nature's supreme examples of nanoscale engineering, have inspired researchers to construct molecular optical devices, such as photonic wires, which are optimised for efficient transfer of excited-state energy over large distances. The control parameters for the design...

We demonstrate the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of an unidirectional photonic wire based on four highly efficient fluorescence energy-transfer steps (FRET) between five spectrally different chromophores covalently attached to double-stranded DNA. The DNA-based modular conception enables the introduction of various...
