The bio-programmable crystallization of multi-component functional nanoparticle systems is Ascribed, as well as methods for such bio-programmable crystallization, and the products resultant from such methods. Specifically, the systems disclosed and taught herein are directed to improved strategies for the DNA-mediated self-assembly of multi-component functionalized nanoparticles into three-dimensional order surperlattices, wherein the functionalization of the nanoparticles with DNA is independent of either the composition of the material, or the shape of the nanoparticles.
