DNA, regarding structure, dynamics and interactions in solution. It is a literature course where each participant gives a presentation (2h) of a chapter of the book. Examination is through 1) the oral presentation, 2) weekly assignments dealing with each lecture, and 3) a few broader assignments at the end of the course.

Nitrogen bases, nucleosides, nucleotides. Chemical and enzymatic methods, Sequencing. DNA structure. UV-vis and IR spectroscopy. Theoretical methods. Size and shape of DNA coils. Conformational change. Circular DNA. Interactions with water, ions, dyes, drugs and proteins. Coil-compaction in vitro and packaging in bacteriophages.
