This micro array DNA chip shows off the structure of the human genome - but how the genome folds in 3D space might dictate how cells actually work within the human body by Rob Waugh, dailymail.co.uk #Human_Genome #Lieberman_Aiden #Rob_Waugh #dailymail
Fractal globule architecture packs two meters of DNA into each human cell, avoids knots: Cover of Science - October '09: While a grad student Erez Lieberman-Aiden, with a reverse engineering technique calle Hi-C described a chromosome as a fractal globule, whose noodle like coils of DNA are untangled like Nissin Top Ramen Noodles. via umass.edu #Human_Genome #Lieberman_Aiden #Ramen_Noodles
How many human genes are there? How long is our DNA? How much of your DNA is the same as the person sitting next to you? Since scholars began studying modern genetics in the mid-19th century, they've made some astounding discoveries about genes and inheritance—and every day they're learning more.
This colorful circle is of circular DNA, inspired by the genome of Haemophilus influenzae which was the first cellular genome to be sequenced, by D. Fleischmann et al. The researchers identified potential protein-coding regions in the H. influenzae genome of which were designated by colored bars in the circular genome.
