Color plot at the end of the book) practically unaffordable to investigate the DNA looping behavior. Therefore, the continuum descriptions are preferred to simulate the configuration and free energy of the DNA loop. In this study, we constructed a three-dimensional hyperelastic beam model of the DNA loop with 76 base pairs long composed of regularly repeating G – C sequences. 1, and the DNA loop is modeled by 100 Hughes-Liu beam elements[77] in DYNA3D[78] . The lac repressor itself is treated as a rigid coupler and the boundary conditions of the beam are obtained from the crystal structure of the lac repressor DNA complex[79] .

These parameters of the effective force fields for the coarse-grained DNA model are characterized by performing the multiscale wavelet projection onto the fine-scale solutoins obtained from the full MD simulation.
