DNA Sorption: Implications in Environmental Science


Waqar Hussain

DNA sorption is the process by which DNA molecules adsorb into solid surfaces, such as mineral particles, soil particles and sediments. The adsorption of DNA molecules onto these surfaces can be attributed to the electrostatic interactions between the negatively charged phosphate backbone of DNA and the positively charged surface of the mineral particles. The phenomenon of DNA sorption has been extensively studied in environmental sciences, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
