The self-assembly of oligodeoxynucleotides is a versatile and powerful tool for the construction of objects in the nanoscale. The strictly information-driven pairing of DNA fragments can be used to rationally design and build nanostructures with planned topologies and geometries. The most recent developments will be presented focusing on the possibilities offered by this area of research to increase our understanding of the subtle interplays between kinetics and thermodynamics in the supramolecular assembling. Topological considerations for the tailoring of DNA nanostructures and strategies for tackling the inherent complexities of such an endeavor will be proposed.
