This review discusses information about the use of DNA as a basis for preparing materials with new properties. The unique molecular recognition property of nucleic acids that underlies the synthesis of targeted controllable structures, where DNA functions as an engineering material rather than a genetic-infor- mation carrier, is considered. Causes of significant advances in this field are discussed. The new functional potential of novel materials is examined.
