Institute of Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry

Research Area: Biomolecular Chemistry

Functional nucleic acids in organic and biomolecular chemistry for labeling, detection and visualization of biomolecules.


  • Structural and mechanistic analysis of nucleic acid catalysis (ribozymes and deoxyribozymes)
  • In-vitro selection of fluorogenic RNA / DNA aptamers and deoxyribozymes
  • RNA labeling with deoxyribozymes using DNA-catalyzed ligation chemistry
  • Synthesis of paramagnetic nucleoside building blocks for EPR spectroscopy
  • Detection of natural modified nucleosides by fluorogenic bioorthogonal labeling
