Unraveling DNA - The Most Important Molecular of Life

Maxim D. Frank-Kamenetskii
Publication date: 


ISBN 0201155842
This is an interesting book by a structural biochemist who specializes in DNA topology, supercoiling, and unusual structures. One question that it asks is "Is DNA really a double helix?" The Watson and Crick B form structure was based on X ray diffraction studies of DNA fibers, but does DNA have this form in solution or in the cell? (As it turns out, it does, but this wasn't known until the 1990's.)
