How Terahertz Waves Tear Apart DNA

FLASHBACK – Oct 30, 2009 – A new model of the way the THz waves interact with DNA explains how the damage is done and why evidence has been so hard to gather
‘Alexandrov and co have created a model to investigate how THz fields interact with double-stranded DNA and what they’ve found is remarkable. They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That’s a jaw dropping conclusion.’ Read More Here
