Thin-film DNA-nanoparticle superlattices can be grown one layer at a time using a stepwise assembly process on DNA substrates. A new design rule for these programmable crystals is presented: the superlattice will adopt an orientation that maximizes complementary DNA interactions with a given crystal plane.
