Chemically Synthesized Deoxypolynucleotides as Templates for Ribonucleic Acid Polymerase
Khorana's methods for synthesizing nucleic acids were a prerequisite for the final solution of the genetic code. Additionally,
Nirenberg regularly made reference to Khorana's contributions, which eventually earned him a share of the Nobel Prize
in 1968. This article provides the results from the types of synthesizing efforts instrumental in his winning the Nobel.
