We report a DNA-gold nanoparticle (AuNP) hybrid hydrogel in which the AuNPs crosslink enzymatically synthesized DNA to form a gel network. PCR-elongated DNA and AuNPs act as a one-dimensional polymer and cross-linkers, respectively. The DNA-AuNP hydrogel has the functional properties of both long DNA and the AuNPs.
