Working out the sequence that makes up genetic code is now routine in medical research, but the sequence is not the whole story; genes are also turned on and off by physical interaction between specific parts of DNA.

DPhil student Alexandra Preston (Drakesmith lab) writes for the Oxford Science Blog about new technology developed by Steve Taylor and his team in the MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology that allows this molecular origami to be modelled and visualised in 3D. Read the post here.
