Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc.
Two volumes contain 53 contributions and panel discussions from the June 1995 annual conference held at the State University of New York at Albany, covering emerging technologies and sophistications in biological structure and dynamics. A sampling of specific topics: structural analysis of the bZIP family of transcription factors; the mechanism of DNA strand exchange mediated by RecA protein; surface- dependent spontaneous denaturation and multimerization of double- stranded DNA; structural correlations for drug-DNA complexes; entry- exit of DNA in the H1-free nucleosome; the Nucleic Acid Database Project; DNA self-fitting; and DNA nanotechnology and topology.
