An Introduction to the Mechanics of DNA
This article gives an overview of recent research on the mechanical properties and spatial deformations of the DNA molecule. Globally the molecule behaves like a uniform elastic rod, and its twisting and writhing govern its compaction and packaging within a cell. Meanwhile high mechanical stresses c...
