Abstract: This thesis is devoted to the study of DNA molecules in nanochannels. In the last ten years, a large number of studies have been conducted wherein DNA molecules were confined to channels with a width of about 100 nm. These studies are motivated both by biotechnical applications, and by the potential for using nanochannels as a model system for studying the physics of confined DNA. The results of this thesis increase our understanding of the equilibrium statistics of such channel-confined DNA. ... more
