DNA double helix

Artwork by Markus Kastner, postdoctoral scholar in biochemistry and molecular biology, titled “Atomic Force DNA.” This molecular model and false color atomic force micrograph merges two separate images. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to image the surface of a single human DNA molecule, and the juxtaposed molecular model shows the underlying structure of the iconic DNA double helix.
