A DNA Representation with a Bead-Spring Model

Our bodies may never stop surprising us with their complexity and perfect mechanics. In its complexity, there are biological functions which occur out of equilibrium, converting chemical to mechanical energy. Due to the importance of DNA it is imperative to study the biological functions that occur in this macromolecule which involves proteins. This is because…
