The following is an edited excerpt.
Researchers at Karolinska Institute in Sweden and Harvard University announced the development of a new method of manufacturing short, single-stranded DNA molecules (oligonucleotides) in the June 2, 2013, issue of the journal Nature Methods.
The new technology allows for mass production of oligonucleotides on an industrial scale. The new method is less expensive than previous methods, can produce a more consistent product, and can manufacture larger and more diverse oligonucleotides.
