Molecular Visualizations of DNA
From John Terning
DNA wrapping into chromatin and DNA replication
These DNA molecular visualisations were created for the
multifaceted 'DNA' project, celebrating the 50th anniversary
in 2003 of the discovery of the double helix. The 'DNA'
project includes a five-part documentary series, museum film
and 'DNAi' online resources for teachers and students.
The dynamics and molecular shapes were based on X-ray
crystallographic models and other published scientific data
sets. Leading scientists, including many Nobel Laureates,
critiqued the animations during their development.
Particular effort was made to ensure the relative shapes,
sizes and 'real-time' dynamics were as accurate as possible.
