DNA’s double helix is pictured for the first time: Researchers hope new technique will reveal how the molecule works
By Damien Gayle, Daily Mail, 30 November 2012

Scientists have for the first time captured a direct image of DNA, the structure that encodes the genetic instructions of all living organisms.

The stuff of life: DNA’s double helix is clearly visible in this scanning electron microscope image taken by an Italian research team using a new method to capture the hitherto elusive molecule

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.
