Abstract:

New nanoscale hetero-oligonucleotide tiles are assembled from DNA, RNA and morpholino oligos and purified using size exclusion filtration. Homo-oligonucleotide tiles assembled from RP-cartridge processed DNA oligos are purified by nondenaturing gel electro- phoresis. These tiles purity and homogeneity are demonstrated by gel electrophoresis and their incorporation into two-dimensional arrays visualized by AFM. This purification methodology increases throughput and decreases costs for researchers who wish to screen multiple tiles for utilization in structural or analytical studies.
