The unique features of the planned research comprise several elements:
- We will make nanotechnology with great precision through our unique ability to chemically functionalize DNA/LNA duplexes with Ångström-scale accuracy;
- We will explore our efficacious and innovtive method for attachment of nucleic acids into liposomes in novel directions;
- We will integrate state-of-the-art lipid, peptide and carbohydrate chemistry with DNA-based self-assembly;
- We will study the chemical, structural and biological properties of the nanobio-systems.
The specific research projects of BioNEC include nano-synthesis, biomolecular catalysis, DNA-controlled synthesis of oligosaccharides and DNA-based de novo design and synthesis of proteins.
The innovative constellation and scientific synergism of BioNEC is expected to lead to breakthrough ideas and unique research results.
