Polymer production line runs on DNA

  • Polymer production line runs on DNA | Chemistry World – US researchers have developed a purely chemical and enzyme-free system that can build synthetic polymers using DNA as a template. The work offers the opportunity to harness the power of natural selection by creating large libraries of synthetic polymers in a similar way that nature evolves biopolymers such as proteins.[cite]10.1038/NCHEM.1577[/cite]
