DNA18 – August 14-17, 2012

The 18th International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming will be held August 14-17, 2012 in Aarhus, Denmark at Centre for DNA Nanotechnology, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University. On Monday August 13 a dnatec workshop on DNA nanotechnology will be arranged.

Research in DNA computing and molecular programming draws together mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to address the analysis, design, and synthesis of information-based molecular systems. This annual meeting is the premier forum where scientists with diverse backgrounds come together with the common purpose of advancing the engineering and science of biology and chemistry from the point of view of computer science, physics, and mathematics. Continuing this tradition, the 18th International Conference on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming (DNA18), under the auspices of the International Society for Nanoscale Science, Computation and Engineering (ISNSCE), will focus on the most recent experimental and theoretical results that promise the greatest impact.

We are looking forward to seeing You in the historic city of Aarhus.

Professor Kurt Gothelf
