Incredibly detailed video shows DNA twisting into weird shapes to squeeze into cells

Scientists recently captured a high-resolution video of DNA shimmying into weird shapes in order to squeeze inside cells. In 1952, Rosalind Franklin produced the first indirect picture of DNA by studying how X-rays bounce off these fundamental molecules. But it wasn’t until 2012 that scientists captured a direct photo of DNA using an electron microscope, […]
