Title: How 3DNA calculate base overlapping?
Post by: jzhang71 on December 17, 2020, 09:42:59 pm
Hi,

Do you know how 3DNA calculate the overlapping area of bases when calculating the base stacking? By Monte Carlo method or there is an analytical solution? Is there a analytical solution of purine-purine stacking (since purine have two rings)?

Thank you very much!

Please read the 2003 3DNA paper (https://doi.org/10.1093/nar/gkg680) and the 2015 DSSR paper (https://doi.org/10.1093/nar/gkv716).
