Jarman, John Bryce (2019) Chemical Tools for the Control of Biological Systems. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/MV3V-2R09.


Described within is an exploration of noncanonical amino acids and photochemistry in the context of chemical biology. The thesis first covers attempts to expand the use of chemically acylated tRNA into new systems, before describing explorations into singlet oxygen as a powerful photochemical tool.
