Computational reports of RNA and DNA

Jiri Sponer and Filip Lankas

Computational experiences of RNA and DNA contains, in an built-in method, smooth computational reports of nucleic acids, starting from complicated digital constitution quantum chemical calculations via specific solvent molecular dynamics (MD) simulations as much as mesoscopic modelling, with the focus given to the MD box. It provides an equivalent emphasis to the prime equipment and purposes whereas successes in addition to pitfalls of the computational strategies are discussed.

The platforms and difficulties studied include:

  • Accurate calculations of base pairing energies
  • Electronic houses of nucleic acids and electron move, via quite a few different types of nucleic acid
  • Calculating DNA elasticity

This publication is excellent to teachers and researchers in natural and computational chemistry in addition to biochemistry and especially these drawn to the molecular modelling of nucleic acids.

Besides the state-of-the artwork technology, the ebook additionally offers introductory details to non-specialists to go into and comprehend this field.
