Among all approaches, the mechanistic one requires the most resolved DNA models that can go down to atomistic DNA descriptions. The complexity of such DNA models make them hard to modify and adapt in order to take into account different biological conditions. The DnaFabric project was started to provide a tool to generate, visualise and modify such c... Title of program: DnaFabric Catalogue Id: AEZV_v1_0 Nature of problem Simulations implying DNA geometrical models often show limitations to support the huge number of DNA constituents. In order to allow users to build, visualise and perform calculations on detailed DNA models including hundreds of thousands of DNA elements, a dedicated framework is needed.
