In light of the risks associated with COVID-19, and uncertainty about the safety of travel in the coming months, we have decided to run the DNA26 conference virtually this year, 2020. We are aiming to provide an interactive experience for the conference, with a full program of contributed track A and B talks, invited keynote talks, a virtual poster session and opportunities for informal interactions. For planning purposes, there will be a nominal registration fee (to be confirmed).

Biomolecular computing is an interdisciplinary field that draws together molecular biology, physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics. Our knowledge of biomolecular computing and the closely-associated field of DNA nanotechnology is increasing exponentially. This annual international meeting began in 1995, immediately after the landmark paper by L Adleman, in which an instance of the Hamiltonian path problem was solved using DNA molecules, opened the door to this new field. Since then, the meeting has been a forum at which scientists from diverse backgrounds, who share a common interest in biomolecular computing, meet and present their latest results.
