Due to the explosive increase of information capacity, traditional information storage technologies are facing unprecedented challenges. In recent years, the cross of DNA nanotechnology and information technology has greatly promoted the development of artificial DNA intelligence systems. In this talk, I will present recent developments of artificial DNA systems for information storage and computing. In addition, I will summarize our recent works of DNA logic circuit, DNA-based nanopore and DNA nanoparticle intelligence assembly, focusing on molecular information processing. Finally, I will talk about our on-going studies related to the nanostructure mediated DNA circuits, DNA storage and nanomachines. These studies reveal the artificial DNA assembly systems provide a dynamically controllable and precisely programmable method for various biomedical and nanoengineering applications.
Dr. Cheng Zhang is an associate professor in School of Electronics Engineering and Computer Science, Peking University, China. He obtained his B.Sc. from Shannxi Normal University in 2003 and Ph.D in 2010 in Peking university. In 2010 and 2014, he worked at Purdue University and Arizona State University respectively as a visiting researcher. He focused on the frontier area of DNA nanotechnology, as DNA circuit and storage, DNA assembled nanopore and nanomachines. The goal of his research is utilizing the programmability of DNA to systematically manipulate the matter at the molecular scale, for applications in nano-information processing and nano-engineering. For instance, using structure tunable DNA operations for constructing complex and programmable artificial molecular networks; establishing DNA origami based molecular storage systems and nanopore devices.
