DNA Photographed for the First Time

Professor Enzo di Fabrizio and colleagues from the University of Genoa, Italy, have taken the first direct photograph of a strand of DNA, the structure that contains the genetic instructions of all living things. The remarkable image was created with a scanning electron microscope and clearly shows the famous DNA double helix predicted by scientists James Watson and Francis Crick nearly 60 years ago. The researchers hope the new technique will one day allow them to view single molecules of DNA interact with other biomolecules. More at Mail Online.
