Laboratory Procedures

We now have our Laboratory Procedures listed on this website.

Details of our four main research areas can be found on our Research Areas Page and our Research Picture Gallery!

A number of web-based calculations including four phase Fresnel calculations and DNA hybridization thermodynamics can be found on our Calculations Page.

We also have web page for our long term project on DNA Computing at Surfaces.

We hope you enjoy this web site!
