Obtained First DNA Image Through an Electron Microscope

dna_1A team of researchers has succeeded for the first time to capture the image of DNA , the double helix model of DNA James Watson and Francis Crick proposed in 1953. DNA strands on a technique that will allow in the future to see how proteins, RNA and other biomolecules interact with DNA.

Crystallized atoms in DNA arrays to form a pattern of dots on a photographic film. The image interpretation requires complex math to figure out what the crystal structure could result in the observed patterns.

Scientists Discover an Enzyme Capable of Correcting More than a Million Bugs in DNA Replication

EnzymeNecessary for the protection of the genome, researchers at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine in Scotland have found an important finding, an enzyme capable of correcting the most common mistake in the DNA of mammals , of vital importance for the protection of the human genome.

RNase H2 , the name of the enzyme, corrects the error due to the inclusion of individual bits of RNA in the DNA
