Colloidal systems in DNA packaging

Abstract
The interaction between DNA and cationic cosolutes- multivalent ions, cationic surfactants and cationic macromolecules- has direct biological implications and is also foreseen to have a number of applications, in particular for transfection and protection and purification of DNA. We have during the last few years established a broad physico-chemical research program on various mixed systems of DNA and cationic surfactants. This collaborative Lund-Coimbra project will be outlined, reporting recent findings as well as research plans. The research is largely based on our previous work on mixed polymer-surfactant systems and as a basis we will describe some important general features of those.
