William E. Mahoney Annual Lecture in Chemistry: Synthesis & Analysis of Biopolymers

Reception and light refreshments at 11:00 a.m.

We have improved technologies for reading and writing nucleic acid and proteins 10 million fold since 2001.  We can design and test  millions to trillions of  engineered genomes, gene therapy capsids, and combinatorial protein mixtures. But this progress is not limited to linear polymers nor to biology, but enables analysis, synthesis, and high throughput functional  testing of a variety of complex, yet atomically precise 3D structures including novel chiralities, high density data storage, nanopores etc.
