Prof. Dr. C. Höbartner

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.
