Congratulations to Keith and Krista, Sarah, Sam, and Hillary on their recent publication in Chemical Communications! They were able to develop and demonstrate the success of a new approach to DNA aptamer selection. This work has taken many years, but we finally have some interesting aptamer sequences. Prof. Padraig Deighan, in the Biology Department at Emmanuel College, was a tremendous help in DNA sequencing and data collection. This was a great team effort!
