Phase Diagram of Twist Storing Lattice Polymers in Variable Solvent Quality
MetadataShow full item record
When double stranded DNA is turned in experiments it undergoes a transition. We use an interacting self-avoiding walk on a three-dimensional fcc lattice weighted by writhe to relate to these experiments and treat this problem via simulations. We provide evidence for the existence of a thermodynamic phase transition induced by writhe and examine related phase diagrams taking solvent quality and stretching into account.
