Bioconjugate Chemistry: WuXi AppTec Developed Novel DNA-Compatible Copper-mediated Oxidative Amidation Reaction, in Collaboration with AbbVie

DNA-encoded library technology allows for the rapid synthesis of large chemical libraries of millions to billions of compounds. The billions of distinct library members of a DEL can then be screened to find novel chemical matter that binds to specific proteins. The structural information of the enriched molecules can then be analyzed according to the sequences of the linked DNA tags.
