Just a quick post today, as I’ve been struck down with some sort of illness. Thankfully it isn’t swine flu, as my temperature remain normal, but it’s still pretty unpleasant. Nevermind that though, you’ve got a cool science video to be watching:
Watching this video is the first time I’ve ever heard of a helicase, which is the amazing little biological machine that splits up a strand of DNA and copies it. As you can see, it actually works like a tiny motor, pulling the DNA apart and sticking it back together. Amazing.
