General description

A comprehensive reference on all aspects of nucleic acid structure, with particular emphasis on results from x-ray crystallography and NMR studies. It describes in detail the variety of structural types discovered to date. It is set out in a systematic manner, progressing through the polymorphs of double helical DNA through to the higher order organizations of triplexes, quadruplexes and junctions, then to RNA structures in their various degrees of complexity.
