Cover Story (view full-size image): Fabricating nano-scale objects in desired morphology is of interest for the development of functional molecular devices. As one of the most powerful technologies to assemble such nanostructures with desired shape and significant accuracy, great attention has been paid to the DNA origami technique. In this paper, using the DNA origami technique, we designed a novel nano-scale module whose morphology can be programmed in various ways. We employed a heptagonal shape for the module that has seven joints and seven edges. Since the flexibility of each joint and connectivity of each edge can be specified independently, combinatorially a large number of morphologies can be potentially formed, some of which were successfully demonstrated through direct observation using atomic force microscopy.
