Nucleic acid structures can have different stabilities that depend on a variety of factors that include the nucleic acid sequence, the structure adopted, and the solution environment. Together, these factors influence the thermal stability of the complex.
- DNA melting;
- RNA melting;
- duplex stability;
- base pairing
