Abstract

An overview of computer simulation techniques as applied to nucleic acid systems is presented. This unit expands an accompanying overview unit (unit Unavailable ) by discussing methods used to treat the energy and sample representative configurations. Emphasis is placed on molecular mechanics and empirical force fields.
