I am an optimist, and believe that the time is ripe for the emergence of a more unified theoretical physics of biological systems, building on successes in thinking about particular phenomena. Expand
Making Sense of Genes
Making Sense of Genes is an accessible but rigorous introduction to contemporary genetics concepts for non-experts, undergraduate students, teachers and healthcare professionals. Expand
Theoretical Analysis of Competing Conformational Transitions in Superhelical DNA
A statistical mechanical model is developed to analyze the competitive behavior of transitions to multiple alternate conformations in a negatively supercoiled DNA molecule of kilobase length and specified base sequence and shows this competition to be highly sensitive to temperature and to the imposed level of supercoiling. Expand
Alternative DNA Structures In Vivo: Molecular Evidence and Remaining Questions
Evidence supporting the formation of alternative DNA structures in vivo is discussed and the role of the mismatch repair machinery in binding mispaired DNA duplexes, triggering genetic instability is emphasized. Expand

In Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll uses a 2-way mirror as a metaphor for seeing ourselves existing in reality while also transporting into our imaginations (Fig. 1). In our imaginations,Expand
Three-dimensional double helical DNA structure directly revealed from its X-ray fiber diffraction pattern by iterative phase retrieval.
It is demonstrated that, when the authors apply iterative phase retrieval methods to a fiber diffraction pattern, the repeating unit, the molecule structure, can directly be reconstructed without any prior modeling. Expand
Cellular Detection of G‐Quadruplexes by Optical Imaging Methods
A repertoire of protocols that have developed over the past years to visualize quadruplexes in cells are listed, thanks to the discovery of a novel family of versatile quadruplex‐selective fluorophores, the twice‐as‐smart quadruplex ligands named TASQ (for template‐assembled synthetic G‐quartet). Expand
Studies towards the prebiotic synthesis and phosphorylation of ribonucleotides
The discovery of a generational node in the network of prebiotic chemistry that links the syntheses of amino acids with nucleotides 5'-phosphates suggests that these different groups of metabolites need not have arisen from separate chemistries, helping to get a better understanding of the processes governing the chemical evolution of life. Expand
A critical analysis of The Nature of Things
A critical analysis of the ‘science play’ The Nature of Things examining the dramaturgical challenges of integrating biography, science and art. The overall aim was to create an original, imaginativeExpand
Investigation of structural properties in biomolecular systems using synchrotron-based spectroscopies
Solid state approaches to structural properties like diffraction or microscopy techniques often cannot be applied to biomolecular systems, at least not without special postpreparation which oftenExpand


A Proposed Structure For The Nucleic Acids.

The proposed structure for the Nucleic Acids is based on X-ray diffraction analysis of Na6(CO3, Na3SO4, Na2SO3, and Na2CO4 using a Higgs boson-like structure. Expand
The structure of proteins; two hydrogen-bonded helical configurations of the polypeptide chain.
This work has used information about interatomic distances, bond angles, and other configurational parameters to construct two reasonable hydrogen-bonded helical configurations for the polypeptide chain; it is likely that these configurations constitute an important part of the structure of both fibrous and globular proteins, as well as of syntheticpolypeptides.
