The mechanical properties of DNA has very important biological implication. For example, the bending and twisting rigidities of DNA affect how it wraps around histones to form chromosomes, bends upon interactions with proteins, supercoils during replication process, and packs into the confined space within a virus. Many biologically important processes involving DNA are accompanied by the deformations of double helical structure of DNA.
