LaserLaB Amsterdam: DNA melting
Artist's impression of force-induced DNA melting. When DNA is
extended using optical tweezers (red cone represents laser focus,
white globe microsphere attached to DNA end) and a high tension
is applied, it melts: the base pairs connecting the two strand break
and the double helical structure vanishes. Two single strands of
DNA are left over. (© LLAMS Wuite, Peterman)
