DNA sequence symmetries from randomness: the origin of the Chargaff’s second parity rule
The results suggest that the double helix energy constraints and, more generally, the physical properties of the dsDNA are the hard drivers of the overall DNA sequence architecture, whereas the selective biological processes act as soft drivers, which only under extraordinary circumstances overtake the overall entropy content of the genome.

Quantum Chemistry Simulation of Biological Molecules
Nano-biotechnology crosses the boundaries between physics, biochemistry and bioengineering, and has profound implications for the biomedical engineering industry. This book describes the quantumExpand
A Beautiful Question: Why Symmetric?
A simple proof of this problem based on information theory as the doubly stochastic matrix is presented, which proves that most of plants have the symmetric property. Expand
A Life Ecosystem Management with DNA Base Complementarity
This paper has straightforward proof of this problem based on life ecosystem management by applying the doubly stochastic matrix to the Shannon entropy of the symmetric channel capacity. Expand
Handy DNA Nucleotide Model
Abstract A readily available resource to create a model for the study of DNA is the human hand. Students can recognize how structure and function of nucleotides determine structure and function ofExpand
Deciphering functional glycosaminoglycan motifs in development.
A coding approach for GAGs is discussed that would enable computational analyses of GAG sequences such as alignments and the computation of position weight matrices to describe GAG motifs. Expand
Science belongs to no one—and to everyone
With this editorial, EDP Sciences launches the new open access (OA), multiand interdisciplinary journal 4open, which will publish articles from four different disciplines in science and research,Expand
An overview on the DNA nucleotide compositions across kingdoms
This article analyzed 371 genomes from different kingdoms and provided an overview on DNA nucleotide compositions and explanations to two long debated questions, including GC content, DNA strand symmetricity, CDS purine content, codon usage, thermophilicity in prokaryotes and non-coding RNA genes.

Chemistry of DNA
After Miescher's discovery of nucleic acid, biochemical research on nucleic acid focused on determining its chemical structure. Nucleic acid purified from calf thymus was composed of one part sugar,Expand
Human genome-wide repair map of DNA damage caused by the cigarette smoke carcinogen benzo[a]pyrene
A general method for genome-wide mapping of nucleotide excision repair at single-nucleotide resolution and applied it to generate repair maps of UV- and BaP-induced DNA damage in human, showing a novel sequence specificity of BaP diol epoxide-deoxyguanosine repair. Expand


Evidence of the existence of a core in desoxyribonucleic acids.
The composition of the desoxypentose nucleic acids of thymus and spleen.
The great part in the activities of the living cell, ascribed at present to the desoxypentose nucleic acids, makes it imperative to perfect a foundation that will make possible the direct consideration of problems of structure, composition, and specificity. Expand
The composition of the pentose nucleic acids of yeast and pancreas.
The application of procedures for the quantitative estimation of individual purines and pyrimidines in mixtures of these bases to a study of the distribution of the nitrogenous constituents of the pentose nucleic acids of yeast and pig pancreas and includes a consideration of aspects related to this problem, such as the mechanisms of the acid hydrolysis of these compounds. Expand
The isolation of highly polymerized desoxypentosenucleic acid from yeast cells.
It appears a matter of real importance to determine whether nucleic acids in general agree with the patterns developed in greater detail for the desoxyribonucleic acid of calf thymus and the ribonucleous acid of yeast, and to approach the general problem of nucleic acid metabolism. Expand
