On the Logic Behind God - Part I
Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA ... function. These base pairs must then be bound together in a long biopolymer strand composed of several disparate components (Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon and Phosphorus) all of which must be bound together by a bonding ...
Computer simulation shows buckyballs deform DNA
It reports the results of a detailed computer simulation that finds buckyballs bind to the spirals in DNA molecules in an aqueous environment, causing the DNA to deform, potentially interfering with its biological functions and possibly causing long-term ...
Francis Crick: Co-Discoverer of DNA's Double Helix
Francis Crick was a pioneer molecular biologist who is credited, along with James Watson and Maurice Wilkins, with discovering the double helix structure of the DNA molecule ... If the weak hydrogen bonds holding the base pair “rungs” of the ladder ...
Discovery of DNA Structure and Function: Watson and Crick
Chargaff's research was vital to the later work of Watson and Crick, but Chargaff himself could not imagine the explanation of these relationships--specifically, that A bound to T and C bound to G within the molecular structure of DNA (Figure 2).
DNA: the 'smartest' molecule in existence?
DNA is the molecule that contains and passes on our genetic information. The publication of its structure on the ... the next by a tough covalent bond, which needs a lot of energy to break. In between the 'rails', weaker hydrogen bonds link the two halves ...
