Abstract: 

The original automated structural hypothesis creation technique for all possible pairs of hydrogen bond stabilized nucleic bases is proposed and has been tested on 1-methylcytosine on the B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) theory level in vacuum.

Keywords: geometric construction, H-bonded, nucleic bases
