Abstract
In this contribution, we report on a study of the self-organization of polynucleotides. The process is computer simulated by the method of molecular dynamics. We investigated a set of polymers composed by one type of nucleotide (the amount of atoms ~3000) as well as a natural molecule phenylalanine t-RNA. Spontaneous transition of α-spiral structure into a globule was observed. In some cases the self-organization was similar to that obtained earlier for simple organic polymers and proteins. Special role of potentials in the self-organization of the polynucleotides was investigated.
