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.
