Designing a structure in nanoscale with desired shape and properties has been enabled by structural DNA nanotechnology. Design strategies in this research field have evolved to interpret various aspects of increasingly more complex nanoscale assembly and to realize molecular-level functionality by exploring static to dynamic characteristics of the target structure. Computational tools have naturally been of significant interest as they are essential to achieve a fine control over both shape and physicochemical properties of the structure. Here, we review the basic design principles of structural DNA nanotechnology together with its computational analysis and design tools.
