    Molecular Visions of DNA

    The DNA of a Eukaryotic chromosome has the shape of a fractal helix with six levels of coiling.  The fractal shape allows for all sizes of the chromosome to be unpacked and transcribed efficiently, from individual genes to long sections of DNA with thousands of co-dependent genes and regulatory sequences.  It has been hypothesized that DNA can act as a fractal antenna which responds to electromagnetic waves in the environment by packing or unpacking its helicies.

    Nothing like a beautiful molecular visualization of DNA in its various states of compaction. Would you look at those...
