  • DNA can shape itself into many forms to achieve its purposes in life. The crystal structure of the junction between two of its forms provides insight into how DNA might accomplish some of these acrobatics.The B to Z of DNAThe existence of left-handed DNA (or Z-DNA) was reported in 1979, and marked by a Nature cover. This week's cover story is the determination of the crystal structure of the junction between left-handed DNA and ‘normal’, right-handed DNA or B-DNA. Each time a DNA segment turns… CONTINUE READING
