Movie S1
A system of 2147 PAEs with n = 8 DNA shell (103.2 nm length) self-assembled over 20 million time steps. Visualized using (left) DNA-tethered nanoparticles, (middle) TBP cores, and (right) the clathrate network. Temperature is varied from T* = 2.7 to T* = 2.4, following the stages described in Section 1. The volume of the simulation box is kept constant. The cluster is automatically centered in the simulation box. Four snapshots of the movie are shown in Fig. S6.
Movie S2
A system of 2274 PAEs with n = 5 DNA shell (68.7 nm length) self-assemble over 21 million time steps. Visualized using (left) DNA-tethered nanoparticles, (middle) TBP cores, and (right) the clathrate network. Temperature is varied from T* = 2.8 to T* = 2.5, following the stages described in Section 1. The volume of the simulation box is kept constant. The cluster is automatically centered in the simulation box.
