While I have purely physics background.
But, In my thinking, there are hydrogen bonds (electrostatic attractive
between bp of both the strands of DNA/RNA which are perpendicular to
And the other thing you have chosen very fast velocity like (0.01, 0.001,
This can also be the reason of smoothness. But can you tell me one thing
value of spring constant of biasing that you have taken (k= 1000), is
standard or not . If this value can be taken for peptide pulling . Can
this value of
spring constant (k=1000) can be taken for DNA (or dna+drug) pulling or
