About this book
Both DNA and RNA can serve purposes beyond simple genetic storage and transfer â€“ for example, they can also be employed as enzymes (for catalysis) and receptors (for ligand binding). Increasingly, researchers are making interesting use of these molecules, now collectively called functional nucleic acids. This book, containing chapters written by leading experts in relevant fields, provides timely accounts of diverse analytical applications that take advantage of the functional nucleic acids. The book is written for academic, clinical and industrial scientists and graduate students who may consider exploring functional nucleic acids in their research or practice.
