Studies on polynucleotides. I. A new and general method for the chemical synthesis of the C5'-C3' intemucleotide linkage. Synthesis of deoxyribo-dinucleotides.J. Amer. chem. Soc., 80, 6212-22, 1958.
Khorana shared the Nobel Prize (Physiology) with R. W. Holley and M. W. Nirenberg in 1968 for the techniques he established for the synthesis of polynucleotides. H. G. Khorana, T. M. Jacob, and S. Nishimura were principally responsible for producing evidence confirming the genetic code.
