DNA is a wonderful material for nanoscale construction: it is a structural material whose self-assembly can be programmed by making use of its information-carrying capability, and its hybridization can be used as an energy source for molecular devices. I shall describe recent work on self-assembled DNA polyhedra and their applications as molecular cages. I shall also discuss the design of synthetic molecular machinery, including progress towards the construction of a free-running molecular motor fuelled by DNA .
