Mechanics of DNA
DNA is a life−sustaining molecule that enables the storage, retrieval and inheritance of genetic information. It is composed of two complementary polymer chains twisted and base−paired together forming the well−known double helix. Based on their discovery of the structure of DNA some fifty years ago, Watson and Crick immediately proposed a possible copying mechanism for genetic information. Their work laid the foundation for our understanding of the important relationship between the structure and function of DNA.
