Interaction and analysis of nucleic acids with lipids > Lipids can be used to form fluid, electrically insulating membranes that are > a few nanometers thick. Insertion of protein pores in these membranes allows > the passage of charged substances, such as DNA, which changes conductance > and can provide analytical information about the passing molecules. > Alternatively, lipids can be used to facilitate chemical synthesis of > nucleic acids by adsorbing RNA, DNA or their constituents onto their > surface; or to study how nucleic acids interact with vesicle-forming lipids, > as a plausible biomimetic simulation. This talk will present examples of > these and related interactions and analyses of nucleic acids with lipids. > **Host** : Alexander Bittner
