Development of genetic control system based on nucleic acids higher order structure
G-quadruplex is one of the higher-order structures of DNA and RNA. G-quadruplexes are dynamic structures involved in transcription, translation, and replication in the cells. In this study, small compounds that bind and stabilize G-quadruplex will be designed and synthesized to regulate gene expression.


It is my first time to receive a research grant from the foundation. I would like to produce research results that will support my future research life.
