Structural and biochemical traits are well studied in modern day science. We have enough data regarding genes and its governing characters. Each protein is encoded by the particular gene and is important for the survival of an organism.  But can we study behavioural characters of an organism based on Genetic traits? Well, a behaviour is […]

  Linking number is a topological property of DNA. Linking number is a sum of twists and writhes. The numbers of time one strand of DNA turned around another strand is called as a twist while inter-coiling of the double helix is termed as a writhe. In short, writhe is a number of a time […]

Role of Topoisomerase I and Topoisomerase II in DNA topology Topoisomerase is a class of enzyme which helps in winding and unwinding of DNA. Three forms of DNA is most prevalent in nature: circular, linear and supercoiled. Circular DNA is covalently closed and does not have any interruption in between nucleotides. Circular DNA is found in […]
