Research summary

My research focuses on the development of rapid and cost-effective sequencing methods based on synthesis of nucleoside derivatives. This would be achieved by multiplex PCR using primers consisting of nucleoside derivatives which form base pairs with natural nucleobases and/or synthetic nucleobases in different hydrogen bonding patterns.
