Oligonucleotides: From design to characterisation

Solid-phase chemical synthesis, pioneered by Bruce Merrifield in the 1960s, is an established and efficient method for the synthesis of oligonucleotides. In this post, Quentin Vicentini from ATDbio will explain the synthesis lifecycle of oligonucleotides.
