DNA’s double helix is pictured for the first time: Researchers hope new technique will reveal how the molecule works

Scientists have for the first time captured a direct image of DNA, the structure that encodes the genetic instructions of all living organisms.
Enzo di Fabrizio and colleagues from the University of Genoa, Italy, developed a technique to capture the famous double helix of DNA using a scanning electron microscope.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecules encode the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses.
