Figure 9

Bubble and helix execution times versus temperature. For the sequence [GenBank:NC_001807], the bubble time (red) and helix time (green) divided by sequence length (16571 bp) is plotted versus T. The melting curve (blue) shows the helicity Θ (on the right vertical axis) as a function of T, indicating the melting midpoint: Θ = 0.5 at Tm = 83.7°C.
