We consider a new model which consists of a DNA together with a RNA. Here we assume that DNA is from a mammal or bird but RNA comes from a virus. To study thermodynamic properties of this model we use methods of statistical mechanics, namely, the theory of Gibbs measures. We use these measures to describe phases (states) of the DNA-RNA system. Using a Markov chain (corresponding to Gibbs measure) we give conditions (on temperature) of DNA-RNA renaturation.

Gibbs measures of Potts model on Cayley trees: a survey and applications
In this paper we give a systematic review of the theory of Gibbs measures of Potts model on Cayley trees (developed since 2013) and discuss many applications of the Potts model to real world
Holliday junctions in the HC Blume-Capel model in ''one case'' on DNA
We consider a DNA as a configuration of HC Blume–Capel model and embed it on a path of Cayley tree. To study thermodynamic properties of the model of DNAs, we describe the corresponding


A Probabilistic Study of DNA Denaturation
We consider Benham’s model for strand separation in supercoiled circular DNA. This is a mean field model in external inhomogeneous field, conditioned to small values of the perimeter. Under some
Thermodynamics of DNA denaturation in a model of bacterial intergenic sequences
Abstract We present a detailed investigation of the denaturation process for intergenic sequences of several bacterial species. The reason for analyzing these specific sequences is that these regions
Holliday Junctions for the Potts Model of DNA
In this paper a DNA is considered as a configuration of 4-state Potts model and it is embed on a path of a Cayley tree. Then we give a Hamiltonian of the set of DNAs by an analogue of Potts model

A hierarchy of a countable set of DNAs each of which ’lives’ on the same Cayley tree is given, which has property that each vertex of the Cayley Tree belongs only to one of DNA.
Nearest-Neighbor Thermodynamics of DNA Sequences with Single Bulge Loo
The nearest-neighbor model was applied to DNA sequences with a single bulge loop and the effects of the type of bulged base and its flanking base pairs and the effect of loop position on the stability of a single Bulge loop were estimated.
The Mathematics of DNA Sturcture, Mechanics, and Dynamics
A brief review is given of the main concepts, ideas, and results in the fields of DNA topology, elasticity, mechanics and statistical mechanics. Discussion in- cludes the notions of the linking
[109] Use of ultraviolet absorbance-temperature profile for determining the guanine plus cytosine content of DNA
The GC content of highly purified DNA samples can be estimated from their thermal denaturation temperatures, employing small amounts of DNA (10–40 μg). The method is simple, convenient and utilizes
Ab initio bubble-driven denaturation of double-stranded DNA: Self-mechanical theory.
It is shown that from the initiation of the transcription bubble by the promoter to the termination state, the open-states of the strands evolve dynamically while generating some localized waveguide channels with elastic scattering properties.
Thermodynamics of DNA microarrays
DNA microarrays have been widely used in molecular biology laboratories. The main current application of these devices is the determination of the gene expression level for thousands of genes
