Topics in Nucleic Acids Structure: DNA Interactions and Folding

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter introduces further topics in nucleic acid structure, building upon the minitutorial of the previous chapter. These topics include DNA sequence effects, DNA hydration, DNA/protein interactions, and the cellular organization of DNA,including supercoiling and chromatin structure. The next chapter expands upon the related topics of alternative hydrogen bonding schemes, non-canonical helical and hybrid structures, DNA mimics, overstretched and understretched DNA, andRNA structure and folding.
