Description

The double-helix structure of DNA deforms by environmental stimuli, which will then affect gene expression, and eventually trigger a sequence of cellular processes. Recent researches led by a physicist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) observed substantial DNA deformations by ions and temperature changes.
