How We've Tackled the Evolving Science of DNA - National Geographic


National Geographic
On April 25, 1953, the journal Nature published a picture that sparked a revolution: the first drawing of the structure of the DNA molecule. That landmark discovery, made possible by the x-ray crystallography work of Rosalind Franklin and Maurice ...

DNA Libraries Are Here to Stay - Science Magazine (blog)


Science Magazine (blog)
Here's an update from Alex Satz of Roche on DNA-encoded library (DEL) screening. I've been mentioning this technique on the blog since its early days, and I freely admit that when it was starting out I had trouble believing that it worked (or even ...

Structure of Memes
Belgium

The main criticism that can be raised against the memetic approach is that memes are difficult to define. What are the elements or units that make up a meme? Does a meme correspond to a complete symphony, or to a symphonic movement, a melody, a musical phrase, or even a single note?

Chromatin Structure
United States

Chromatin is the substance which becomes visible chromosomes during cell division. Its basic unit is nucleosome, composed of 146 bp DNA and eight histone proteins. The structure of chromatin is dynamically changing, at least in part, depending on the need of transcription. In the metaphase of cell division, the chromatin is condensed into the visible chromosome. At other times, the chromatin is less condensed, with some regions in a "Beads-On-
