The Physics of DNA: modeling and experiments
(Physique théorique des systèmes biologiques)
While performing its function in cells, DNA is subject to a considerable amount of mechanical deformations due to the interactions with other bio-molecules and to thermal fluctuations. To understand the functioning and properties of DNA, it is important to understand its mechanics, a task which involves modeling and experiments. In this talk I will give a general overview of our present understanding of DNA physical properties and of DNA-protein interactions, highlighting some recent results and future challenges.
