We all know colors, they are everywhere, they define concepts. Trees? Green. Sky? Blue. Fire? Orange. We can also play and have fun with colors by painting. Colors give us the tools to be creative, to explore the artistic world and our own imagination.
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.
In this post for our online science exhibition, Quentin Vicentini from ATDbio (headed by Tom Brown Jr) presents six images that will take you through the process of oligonucleotide synthesis.
Our consortium, enabled by the ERC, brought together students from nine countries to work on projects that were designed to be part of a shared goal. At the end of this work, we students will, hopefully, attain our PhDs. However, even so, I can say that none of us will arguably have the same story to tell at the end of this journey, even though we are broadly working in similar fields with noteworthy PIs.
In thispost for online science exhibition, we will learn about examples of DNA systems powered by antibodies presented by Lorena Baranda Pellejero from Ricci’s lab at University of Rome Tor Vergata.
