... It is easier to bend DNA at that places where there are two hydrogen bonds? But why? I looked at DNA molecule but I do not know where exactly it bends, does each bond bend itself? Or maybe the phosphodiester bonds are stretched and contracted when bending the DNA molecule (in case of circular ...

... catastrophe and that vast amounts of sediment overcame them quickly? If sedimentary rock built up over millions of years, why are there 90 degree bends in multiple very thick strata in the grand canyon without cracks? These same strata extend throughout the US, some as far as the UK. This would ...
