In the last decade a lot of interest was paid to DNA materials in view of their practical applications in photonics and in electronics. This aspect is especially due to the fact that this polymer is eco-friendly, originating from renewable resources and can be obtained from any animal or vegetable waste. In this respect many studies have shown that DNA is an intriguing biopolymer which can find applications in many fields. In this paper we will review and discuss the functionalization of DNA and some practical applications.
