DNA seen directly through a microscope for the first time.

Interestingly enough, until today, the DNA helix could only be viewed using a technique called x-ray crystallography. This technique which uses reflected rays to analyse the DNA is still imprecise.

A new technology, using an electron microscope, has for the first time succeeded in analyzing in greater details our DNA.

This could lead to fascinating results and shed new understanding in the future about who we are. The future is bright.
