We develop and support two non-profit academic resources within the Beckman Institute at Caltech:


Molecular Technologies applies principles from dynamic nucleic acid nanotechnology and molecular programming to develop and support programmable molecular technologies for reading out and regulating the state of endogenous biological circuitry in an anatomical context.


The Molecular Technologies team has designed and synthesized custom molecular kits for researchers in hundreds of laboratories worldwide. Molecular Technologies papers have been cited over 4400 times. 

NUPACK is a growing software suite for the analysis and design of nucleic acid structures, devices, and systems serving the needs of researchers in the fields of nucleic acid nanotechnology, molecular programming, synthetic biology, and across the life sciences.


The NUPACK web application hosts millions of page views per year. NUPACK papers have been cited over 3400 times.
