Novel Use of Halogen Bonds Could Revolutionize Molecular Research

A team of biochemists at Oregon State University has discovered that a halogen bond can be used to manipulate the 3-dimensional shape of DNA. Halogen bonds, which are not often a part of biological molecules, possess chemical characteristics that OSU believe make it ideal for biomedical engineering research, and also holds promise for future advances in such fields as nanotechnology and pharmacology. The work was funded by the NIH.
