Abstract: A facile technique of manual oligonucleotide synthesis via H-phosphonate approach is developed. Syntheses carried out in pipette tips with siliconised glasswool filters take 33.5 min per cycle with 9798% yields per condensation. The method was used to synthesize 1255-mers: T7 and PL promoter regions, gene of the signal peptide of the E. coli OmpA protein, oligonucleotides coding for amino acid sequences 94105 of preS1- and 133143 of preS2-regions of hepatitis B virus, hybridisation probes, sequencing primers, oligonucleolides for site-directed mutagenesis, etc.
