Today I spent most of the day reading through the first half of Prof. Andresen's PhD thesis. His work uses anomalous small-angle x-ray scattering (ASAXS) to describe competition between different valence ions in the ion atmosphere surrounding DNA. I found his background of the basic biological theory behind the work especially useful, because it was laid out in a very clear manner. He also described the motivation behind the work we are doing, which was also very interesting.
