Latest Helices Stories
Remember Slinky®, the coiled metal spring that "walks" down stairs with just a push, momentum and gravity?
Using state-of-the-art technology, scientists at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen and their international collaborators have successfully obtained "molecular snapshots" of tens of thousands processes involved in DNA damage repair.
So what is it that gives NY Knicks Jeremy Lin his unique competitive edge? Greg Herzog, a former sub four minute miler and conditioning specialist in New York City has worked with competitive
The search for a solid answer on whether DNA can be reprogrammed or influenced through frequencies and words may have been answered based on a recent study by noted Russian biophysicist and molecular
Chemists at The University of Texas at Austin have created a molecule that's so good at tangling itself inside the double helix of a DNA sequence that it can stay there for up to 16 days before the DNA liberates itself, much longer than any other molecule reported.
A research group in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Alberta is hoping its latest discovery could one day be used to develop new therapies that target certain types of cancers.
It's been more than 50 years since James Watson and Francis Crick showed that DNA is a double helix of two strands that complement each other.
New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal Cell & Bioscience is the first to show that left-handed Z-DNA, normally only found at sites where DNA is being copied, can also form on nucleosomes.
DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...
