DNA lends scientists a hand, revealing new chemical reactions

strands with a complementary sequence - means that DNA-templated synthesis can be used to evaluate hundreds of potential chemical reactions simultaneously, in a single solution. "We had assumed that DNA-templated synthesis might make possible rapid d...
