I belive that you all know me from my previous post, but if new on the blog, I am Karol Kolataj from Tim Liedl’s group in Munich.
I hope that up till now you like our blog. As we already moved to more science-focused part of the blog, in this entry I will show you colourful side of nanotechnology, and explain how scientists can control colour and shape of noble metal nanoparticles.
Hello dear reader, this is Aitor Patiño again, writing from Rome.
This time, I’ll write about science for a change from my previous post, more specifically, about what we do in the lab I work at (www.francescoriccilab.com).

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.
