New PDF release: Advanced Mechanical Models of DNA Elasticity

By Yakov M Tseytlin

Advanced Mechanical types of DNA Elasticity comprises insurance on 17 various DNA types and the function of elasticity in organic capabilities with vast references. the unconventional complicated helicoidal version defined displays the direct connection among the molecule helix constitution and its particular homes, together with nonlinear beneficial properties and transitions. It offers an creation to the nation of the sector of DNA mechanics, recognized and generic types with their brief research, in addition to assurance on experimental equipment and information, the impact of electric, magnetic, ionic stipulations at the patience size, and dynamics with viscosity impact. It then addresses the necessity to comprehend the character of the non-linear overstretching transition of DNA lower than strength and why DNA has a destructive twist-stretch coupling.

  • Includes assurance of 17 modern versions of DNA mechanics with analysis
  • Provides comparability of DNA and RNA mechanical features
  • Covers advances in experimental ideas together with AFM, X-ray, and optical tweezers
  • Contains broad references for extra reading
