During the past year, a variety of methods have been developed with which to investigate the structures of large nucleic acids. Modeling techniques are assisting in the refinement of structures, particularly for large RNAs. Supercoiled DNA plasmids are being investigated using models that mimic the known elastic properties of the molecule. The level of detail in a particular modeling method must be appropriate to the question being posed.
