Abstract

Invited for this month’s cover is the group of Dr. Vyacheslav V. Filichev from Massey University, New Zealand and a collaborator from the Instituto de Química Física Rocasalano, CSIC, Spain. The cover picture shows how a DNA strand that forms a highly stable G-quadruplex can be converted into an efficient DNA triplex-forming oligonucleotide by incorporating a pyrene intercalator into the sequence.
