Greener Methods for Oligonucleotide Synthesis

Time: 5pm Amsterdam – 9 AM MST
Date: February 23, 2023

Research: My research focuses on the development of novel methodologies for oligonucleotide synthesis, with a particular emphasis on reducing the solvent footprint of oligonucleotide synthesis.

Webinar topic: My webinar will largely focus on using mechanochemistry to synthesize short DNA, RNA, and modified nucleic acid fragments. Some preliminary results describing different methods for green oligonucleotide synthesis may also be discussed.
