Title: Tuning phase and aging of DNA hydrogels through molecular design

Abstract

Using self-assembling, multi-valent DNA nanostars, we show that DNA hydrogel phase and structure can be controlled by tuning hydrogel aging kinetics through the rational design of gel-forming elements and solvent conditions.
