Although ubiquitously thought of as a simple string of letters, DNA exhibits complex physicochemical properties. As a result, DNA can store information beyond the extensively studied explicit genetic message. The mechanical code of DNA has not been studied systematically in a genome-wide context until recent groundbreaking work by Basu et al.
