DNA and peptide stabilized fluorescent silver nanoclusters

In this talk I will highlight the potential of using DNA and peptides as a scaffold for stabilizing fluorescent silver nanoclusters (below 30 atoms). These small silver clusters exhibit interesting photo physical properties which can find applications in imaging and detection of small molecules. The emission properties can be tuned by changing the nucleotide or amino acid sequence.
