  1. Each data set has the following characteristics: the number of sequence pairs (Num. duplexes), the length of the sequences (Seq. len), the experimental temperature measured in degrees Celsius for estimating free energies (T), the sodium concentration measured in molar units ([Na]+)and the sequence concentration (Seq. conc). The set of 695 DNA duplexes contains: (i) 143 perfect match free energies measured at a temperature of 37°C and a sodium concentration of 1 M, (ii) 197 perfect match duplexes measured at a temperature of 25°C and a sodium concentration of 1 M, (iii) 7 perfect match duplexes measured at a temperature of 50°C and a sodium concentration of 1 M, and (iv) 348 duplexes with mismatches measured at various temperatures and sodium concentrations.
