The work of UBC Chemistry Professor David M. Perrin and his research group has made the cover of this month’s Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry. Curtis H. Lam, Christopher J. Hipolito, Marcel Hollenstein and David M. Perrin authored “A divalent metal-dependent self-cleaving DNAzyme with a tyrosine side chain.”
The Perrin lab has been applying synthetic chemistry to combinatorial DNA selection to discover new forms of bio-inspired materials that are life-like but not living yet capture the efficiency, complexity, and specificity of biology.
