Recently, biological materials such as DNA molecules, proteins, and albumen have been extensively investigated for various applications, as they are environmentally friendly and exhibit novel optical and electronic properties. Especially, over the last decades, DNA–lipid complex have been frequently reported as components of optical electronic devices. In this mini-review, the physicochemical performance of DNA–lipid complex is introduced, and then the related research progress in electronic devices such as organic thin film transistors and other optical-electrical devices are discussed. Finally, the challenges and prospects of other possible applications are also presented. View Full-Text
