DNA knotting in spooling like conformations in bacteriophages


A number of idealized models have been proposed to explain the long range organization of the DNA in bacteriophages. However, none of these models can account for the distributions of complex knots found when examining DNA extracted from bacteriophage P4 capsids. Furthermore, these models do not consider possible chirality biases in the arrangement of the… (More)
