An efficient numerical Monte-Carlo method is proposed for the estimation of the entropic contribution to the elastic properties of cell protein and lipid chain biomolecules. Specific load-extension curves are obtained numerically for a group of molecules with degenerate potential energy profiles. Spread of the linear elastic regimes and dependence on the molecular weight and geometric parameters of the molecules are discussed.
