Wow just Wow-—as we continue to improve our ability to view our universe in a macro and micro way we are yet again humbled, fascinated and energized by the masterstroke of God’s hand.

Great post

i never could understand how they can do gene spicing and NOT be able to produce an image of it...

The helix looks much tighter than in most models.

Chemistry picked apart the structure of molecules way, way before microscopy was competent to visualize them. Diagramming something isn’t the same as getting some sort of direct picture.

Scrunched up like a bottle brush. Diagrams stretch the longitudinal axis to make it easier for people to read them.

Looks like a Fourier analysis could identify some interesting characteristics of DNA.

but how do they know if they get them in the right place/sequence, is it just in the general area or is it hit and miss or do the chemical bonds determine if it will splice properly or not

Wow, judging from what I read there this girl is going to have a big, Roman nose...

Now I know how Joan of Arc felt

I think it works like a regular expression substitution in vi where you know what your desired context is

You might not want to do

:1,$s/foobar/raboof/

but rather something like

:1,$s/my context foobar more context/my context raboof more context/

There has to be a larger stretch in which the edit in question occurs, all chemically mediated of course.

First , we open source her DNA...

Your current credentials do not allow....

Is that just a “we’re too cool to let you into the clubhouse” thing, or is there some reason for it?

If you're not a dues paying member of the American Chemical Society, they want you to buy the article.
