Zone in with Zon: Quantitative Visualization of Cellular G-Quadraplex DNA Structures

Dr. Gerald Zon’s second blog post in his column “Zone in with Zon—What’s Trending in Nucleic Acid Research,” (http://zon.trilinkbiotech.com/) was posted on April 15, 2013 and features an interview with Professor Shankar Balasubramanian (Cambridge University) on his quantitative visualization of cellular G-quadruplex DNA structures. This notable achievement, published in Nature Chemistry in January 2013, had over 82,000 page views within 3 weeks! Proposed G-quadruplex DNA and RNA cellular functions are exciting new topics to be aware of, according to Dr. Zon, who is an eminent nucleic acid chemist and Director of Business Development at TriLink BioTechnologies in San Diego, California.
