The following commentator writes:
Mechanical cues Since the mid 80s it has been hypothesized that there is a second layer of information on top of the genetic code: DNA’s mechanical properties. Each of our cells contains two meters of DNA molecules, so these molecules need to be wrapped up tightly to fit inside a single cell. The way in which DNA is folded, determines how the letters are read out, and therefore which proteins are actually made. In each organ, only relevant parts of the genetic information are read, based on how the DNA is folded. The theory goes that mechanical cues within the DNA structures determine how DNA prefers to fold.
My question is: Is there enough evidence in this paper that there is a second (mechanical) layer of information in DNA?
