Simulation of DNA transporting transcription factor

Simulation of DNA transporting transcription factor

Model of DNA thicket found in Escherichia coli bacteria. It is densely packed and tense like a tangle of watch springs. Researchers hypothesize that it is in constant motion and transports large protein molecules called transcription factors to sites where the factors go to work. The researchers have built a very large, unique simulation to test this hypothesis.
