Structures and Superstructures in Periodical Polynucleotides
A renewed attention has been focused on the structural aspects of DNA in the last few years. Such revival of interest starting from the elucidation of the structure of some synthetic oligonucleotides is going beyond toward the understanding of the basic molecular mechanisms of control of genetic information, which are strictly correlated to the question how DNA structure depends on the sequence.1
