Topics in Nucleic Acids Structure: Noncanonical Helices and RNA Structure

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter builds upon nucleic acid concepts introduced in the prior two chapters to include a description of alternative hydrogen bonding schemes in nucleic acids, non-canonical helical and hybrid structures, DNA mimics, overstretched and understretched DNA, and RNA structure and folding, including secondary and tertiary-structure RNA modeling.
