(Figure Presented) One small step: A facile and robust one-step method for creating stable, water-soluble quantum dot (QD)-biomolecule conjugates is described. DNA molecules can be readily attached to QDs during core-shell synthesis (see picture of DNA functionalization of a CdSe@ZnS core-shell QD).
- FRET (fluorescent resonant energy transfer)
- Quantum dots
