Project title: Application of DNA-based catalysis to natural product synthesis

Summary: The right-handed double helix of DNA provides a fascinating scaffold that begs to be used by chemists. In the field of organic synthesis, this device enables various asymmetric transformations of small molecules. We envision to extend the scope of DNA-based catalysis to new reactions such as electrocyclic processes, thus opening new avenues for the total synthesis of complex natural products.
