Agency: HHS
Research Institution: FOUNDATION FOR APPLIED MOLECUL
Principal Investigator: Steven A. Benner
Award Amount: $102,750.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed research will develop dynamic combinatorial chemistry as a new and innovative strategy to allow a DNA or RNA target in a biological sample to assemble its own template under conditions of dynamic equilibriu m. This chemistry incorporates element that… More

Design Automation Software for DNA-Based Nano-Sensor Architectures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Research Institution: University of Rochester
Principal Investigator: Steven Benner, Manager – (352) 271-7005
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Tammie Martin
Abstract:
Because of chemical behaviors of real DNA molecules, the nanotechnology envisioned by the Defense Department in this Solicitation will be possible only if design automation software creates nanostructures that exploit artificially expanded genetic information systems (AEGIS). AEGIS DNA molecules… More
