We demonstrate the self-assembly of DNA and DNA binding proteins into two-dimensional networks that are then addressable by sending a second protein to a specific recognition site on the DNA network. These networks cover centimeters in area but can be addressed with nanometer precision. This hierarchical self-assembly of specific DNA protein complexes will be the basis for complex positioning of single molecules in two and three dimensions. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
