Photoinduced processes in nucleic acids are phenomena of fundamental interest in diverse fields, from prebiotic studies, through medical research on carcinogenesis, to the development of bioorganic photodevices. In this contribution we survey many aspects of the research across the boundaries. Starting from a historical background, where the main milestones are identified, we review the main findings of the physical-​chemical research of photoinduced processes on several types of nucleic-​acid fragments, from monomers to duplexes. We also discuss a number of different issues which are still under debate.
