DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...ifferent cells, it would be 25 synthesis steps the traditional way," Baker said. At two to three months per synthesis, and a significant loss of yield for each step, that approach just wouldn't be practical. Instead, the Baker group will create a library of single-functional dendrimers that can be synthesized i...
