Artificial DNA: PNA & XNA is a multi-disciplinary journal covering chemical, biophysical, medical and conceptual aspects of non-natural DNA and RNA analogues and mimics including PNA, LNA, HNA, morpholinos etc., as well as of DNA and RNA containing non-natural (e.g. orthogonal) base pairs, and non-natural nucleic acid structures such as aptamers and nucleic acid nano-structures.
Artificial DNA: PNA & XNA publishes three general types of papers, (1) original research, (2) methods and technical advances, and (3) reviews and meeting reports. Original papers cover topics important in the field, including new chemistry and artificial structural aspects, nucleic acid nanotechnology, new concepts, biological and biomedical applications as well as origin of life and artificial cell aspects. We realize new developments in methodology and techniques are an important resource for the research community, therefore a section of the journal is dedicated to the latest developments in novel methods concepts.
