About Deepti Duvvuru

The main goals of my research is to improve the efficiency and accuracy of template copying. The idea is to use the re-activation chemistry by allowing the pool of monomers and oligos to remain fully activated that increases the efficiency of template copying and also by the use of 2-thio-U or 2-thio-T that may also enhance template copying because of the stronger2-thio-U(T):A base-pair, and the weaker 2-thio-U(T):G wobble pair.
