- Research Keywords
nucleic acids, RNA, DNA, nucleic acids chemistry, oligonucleotide therapeutics, genetic analysis
Overview of Research
The chemical synthesis of DNA or RNA is the key technology for genetic analyses or oligonucleotide therapeutics. I am now developing new types of modifications of nucleic acids to advance the accuracy of genetic analyses or to create novel therapeutic agents.
