Nucleic Acid Chemistry
The research focus of the Höbartner group is in organic and biomolecular chemistry of functional nucleic acids.
Current projects involve the following topics:
Nucleic Acid Catalysis
- In vitro selection of new ribozymes and deoxyribozymes for RNA ligation, RNA labeling and
detection of RNA modifications
- Structural and mechanistic analysis of DNA enzymes
Fluorescent nucleic acids
- In vitro selection and engineering of fluorogenic RNA and DNA aptamers
- Bioorthogonal labeling of natural nucleoside modifications
More details will follow soon.
