Just like the Conversation program, they constitute a tour de force in the discipline.
Structure, Motion, Interaction and Expression of Biological Macromolecules Volume 1
DNA conformation in crystals and protein complexes; DNA tetraplexes and i-motifs; mixed strand DNAs; immobile slipped-loop DNA motifs; macro- and microscopic DNA deformations; DNA molecular dynamics with environmental effects; bendability, curvature and malleability of genomic DNA; DNA bending by small molecules; DNA recognition by peptide nucleic acid; DNA as a catalyst; a new atomic force microscopy for DNA imaging; looking at protein-DNA interactions and DNA kinking by high resolution imaging.
DNA recognition by polyamides, the use of a GC specific reading element; DNA complexes of anticancer drugs; design of drugs to specifically bind to DNA; binding into the minor groove of DNA; conformational transition of DNA-ligand complexes; rational design of ligands and drugs to bind to DNA and RNA; modeling of DNA replication intermediates.
Volume 1, in its 298 pages, contains 24 chapters with 862 references to literature, 49 tables and 197 figures; 47 of the figures are four-color processed renditions.
