As an inorganic chemist interested in the interactions of metal-ion
complexes with oligonucletides, I know that I'm trespassing where
I don't belong, but this price grabbed my attention!
Can this really be the commercial price for oligos on the micromole
scale? Down here I was under the (hopefully mistaken) impression
that synthetic oligos (12-mers) would cost us several thousand
dollars for 25mg. Can I buy 25mg of eg. the Dickerson(?) dodecamer
for 12x$6.50 = $78/micromol ??
