Data and References for Longest Published sDNA

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks
Various hard drive crashes have several times wiped out my records for the longest published synthetic DNA (sDNA).  I find that I once again need the list of references to finish off the edits for the book.  I will post them in the open here so that I, and everyone else, will always have access to them.

For those in the medical or health related profession, this site may be a valuable data information and support to your research.

Thanks for sharing Rob. Really interesting. Had no idea how quickly the lengths available via publication jumped up in size. Really increased in the last decade at an amazing rate.

This is a very interesting study Rob has made. I am glad that there is a website like this one that can provide such good information about the longest published sDNA. Thank you for letting us know.

This information is highly useful indeed. I wonder what attributed to the sudden increase in length in base pairs after the year 2000.

Thanks for the list of references. I believe many people would find the information highly useful. I hope that you are able to finish the edits in your book and I look forward to reading it.
