Zinc Finger Library Construction - Creative Biolabs

Zinc finger is a member of the DNA-binding motifs family, contains multiple finger-like protrusions that can recognize a diverse set of DNA strings in a sequence-specific manner. The binding ability of zinc finger is considered to involve the sequences of finger domains and their linkers, as well as their number and structure order.
