Congratulations to undergraduate students and chemistry alumni on their recent article published in Analytica Chimica Acta titled “Selected DNA aptamers as hydroxyapatite affinity reagents“. This work has been a long time in the making beginning with the origins of our SELEX work by Hillary Butts and Samantha Watson. This particular selection was initiated by Jack Florek, carried forward by Emma Duffy, and validated by Stephanie Colon – all authors on the paper. It is a true “bright spot” (because of fluorescence) for the GRAB Lab and for Emmanuel College. This work was supported by Emmanuel College and by the National Science Foundation, Division of Materials Research (DMR 1306117).
