Homework 1

Due Tuesday, 1/26, in class

Please read about "base-stacking" and "hydrogen bonding" in this section of a biochemistry text (section 5.2.1) on DNA.

Does this description agree with the assertions in section 2.6 of Fundamental Molecular Biology on the contribution of hydrogen bonding to the stability of double-stranded DNA? Please explain.

Your response need only be about half a page long.
