Abstract

Synthetic nucleic acids are produced routinely for a wide variety of applications, including biological and chemical research, and diagnostic or therapeutic applications. To ensure an adequate level of quality and purity, rapid and convenient analytical methods are necessary. This unit discusses basic principles to guide in the selection of appropriate purification and analysis protocols.
