Torsional fluctuations in columnar DNA assemblies

  title={Torsional fluctuations in columnar DNA assemblies},
  author={Dominic J O' Lee and Aaron Wynveen},
In columnar assemblies of helical bio-molecules the azimuthal degrees of freedom, i.e. rotations about the long axes of molecules, may be important in determining the structure of the assemblies, especially when the interaction energy between neighbouring molecules explicitly depends on their relative azimuthal orientations. For DNA this leads to a rich… CONTINUE READING
