Nature has evolved to assemble macroscopic structures with nanoscale precision. Here, we used intelligently designed DNA strands capable of self-assembly to assemble millions of micron scaled DNA canvas capable of free nanoscale patterning. To demonstrate the size of the assembly, an image of a bacteria was woven into the DNA network roughly to biological scale.
