3.2 Higher-order DNA structures: DNA twisting and torsional effects

As discussed earlier, the helical nature of DNA results for the most part from the properties of the bases, their interactions and the geometry of the helix itself. There is, however, another important contributor to the structure of DNA that is found within the cell. The DNA helix is actually under a torsional stress due to what is called DNA twisting, which arises when the two strands of the helix are twisted around the axis, as shown in Figure 11a.

3.4 Protocols and standards

You have already met the idea of protocols in Section 1 – rules to govern how information is sent, transmitted and received. Protocols can be explained using an analogy with the way people talk to each other. When we talk we don't simply string words together in a random fashion: we have a set of rules (grammar) that determines the order of words and the way sentences are constructed. Understand didn't have other us difficult if it would be quite rules each these for to we. We hope t

1.5.2 Validation and ‘so what’

It's usually not enough to find something; initial conclusions usually require a validation step, a chance to expose them to falsification or corroboration. For example, the conventional validation step for an implementation is an evaluation. The conventional validation step for a novel solution is a demonstration of concept, or a performance test.

Good dissertations are distinguished by ‘asking the next question’, i.e. by not being satisfied with the first result, but invest

3 Strange words, long sentences and lost meanings

In reading for a purpose it is not unusual to get stuck on unfamiliar words and concepts or struggle with complex ideas and sentences. This section suggests tactics for coping with unfamiliar words (and inadequate dictionaries), unpacking complex sentences and retrieving lost meanings. In order to do this we will draw on an extract taken from a book, Crime and Society in Britain, by Hazel Croall (1998) which is a social science text. It thus contains more ‘conceptual’ or ‘technic

2.1.3 Reflective diffraction gratings

Although the above description of diffraction has been in terms of light passing through a series of slits in a (transmission) diffraction grating, the type of grating which is currently most common in astronomy is a reflective diffraction grating or reflection grating. This again exploits the wave properties of light, in this case by making adjacent sections of a wavefront travel extra distances as it is reflected off a non-uniform surface. The non-uniform surface is actually a
