Cool DNA article about spiral configuration and electrons.

"The researchers fabricated self-assembling, single layers of DNA attached to a gold substrate. They then exposed the DNA to mixed groups of electrons with both directions of spin. Indeed, the team's results surpassed expectations: The biological molecules reacted strongly with the electrons carrying one of those spins, and hardly at all with the others."


Well that's pretty cool. I didn't know that DNA would work outside of the cell structure. I wonder if the experiment was immersed in a medical fluid of some sort?
