An Analytical and Computational Infrared Spectroscopic Review of Vibrational Modes in Nucleic Acids
- Chemistry, Biology
This work will lay a foundation to understanding the spectroscopy of DNA/RNA in response to hydration and has important implications for understanding how cells respond to environmental stresses such as dehydration.
Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Modulate the B- to A-DNA Transition
- PhysicsThe journal of physical chemistry. C, Nanomaterials and interfaces
The conformational equilibrium between B-to-A forms of ds-DNA adsorbed onto a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) using free energy profile calculations based on all-atom molecular dynamics simulations reveals that in the presence of a SWNT DNA, B- form DNA favors B-form DNA significantly in both poly-GC and poly-AT sequences.
Metal ions as a factor of functional evolution and of development of some important biochemical properties in prebiotic and biological conditions
- BiologyOrigins of life
A series of mechanisms by which metal ions participate in the specialization and modification of the catalytic function, in the perfection of metabolic control, are displayed.

X-ray scattering by partially disordered membrane systems
A method of analysing the X-ray diagrams of imperfect membrane lattices with degrees of stacking disorder between 2 and 6% is presented. The method is, however, generally applicable to partially…

Abstract representations of biological systems in supercategories.
- MathematicsThe Bulletin of mathematical biophysics
Two theorems which present the connection between categories and supercategories are proved and the relevance of these results for a quantum theoretic approach to biology is discussed.
Relational forces and structures produced by them
Different isomorphisms between anatomical structures, as described in ordinary Euclidean space, and the sociological structures described in an abstract space are noted, as should be expected from the theory of organismic sets.
The Anderson transition
- PhysicsProceedings of the Royal Society of London. A. Mathematical and Physical Sciences
An outline is given of the electrical properties expected in a disordered solid or fluid which shows a metal-insulator transition of Anderson type. This is one in which the Fermi energy of the…
Organismic supercategories and qualitative dynamics of systems.
The representation of biological systems by means of organismic supercategories, developed in previous papers (Bull. Math. Biophysics,30, 625–636;31, 59–71;32, 539–561), is further discussed. The…
