Dear Kwon:

Great work, which company manufactured the star shape? and did you apply this technology to other viruses? and do you have coming publications on this topic?

take care

1) We designed the star-shaped structure using DNA oligomers.

2) We can design any shaped and patterned 2D and 3D scaffolds. Now, we will design the specific structures for targeting influenza viruses.

1) As shown in Figure 1a in the article, we found the star-shaped ED3 sites (target) where the aptamer (ligands) can bind to.

2) You can apply this technology to any viruses.
