Fields of Study

We have attempted to define a series of sub-categories with the hope that you could identify yourself with one or more disciplines and participate actively in the exchange of scientific information within your own area of interest as well as across disciplines.

IS3NA main disciplines have been defined as follows:

Chemistry and Medicinal chemistry of nucleosides, nucleotides and oligonucleotides

Structural analogues of nucleosides, nucleotides and oligonucleotides

Synthesis and structure of nucleic acids

Biochemistry and mechanisms of nucleic acids

Nucleic acids as catalysts, ribozymes and siRNA

Nucleic acids as diagnostics and novel materials


You're required to associate your profile with a particular area of study. You can express an interest on up to three such "fields of study" at the time of registration.

Should you feel that another field of study be added to the list please email us with the suggestion.
