Basic concepts and recent advances in electrochemical analysis of nucleic acids

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The life-driven request for sensitive and specific analysis of nucleic acids motivates intensive research in this field, including the development of electrochemical sensors for nucleic acid detection. Several basic concepts, underlying the existing variety of electrochemical nucleic acids biosensors, and their recent advances and contribution to practically sought solutions for nucleic acid analysis are discussed here; among those are conformational beacons, electrocatalytic DNA sensors, and sensors exploiting electrical properties of DNA.
