Dynamics of DNA Squeezed Inside a Nanochannel via a Sliding Gasket

We use Brownian dynamics (BD) simulation of a coarse-grained (CG) bead-spring model of DNA to study the nonequilibrim dynamics of a single DNA molecule confined inside a rectangular nanochannel being squeezed with a sliding gasket piston or “nanodozer”. From our simulations we extract the nonequilibrim density profile c(x, t) of the squeezed molecule along… CONTINUE READING
