Using an Electron Microscope, Enzo di Fabrizio and his team at the University of Genoa have produced the first clear image of the DNA double helix.

Very cool.

    The electron microscope is an amazing device, and this is really amazing that now they have actually photoed the DNA strand – the artists rendition we have seen for some time but this…wow. I love science.

    These are amazing images.

    I use a Transmission Electron Microscope almost everyday and these images are great. It wasn’t easy to get them either. I only wish the scale bar as annotated so we could figure out the photomicrograph’s magnification.
