5.1.1 What is DNA?

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is frequently in the news for four main reasons.

  1. DNA can be used in crime detection to eliminate innocent suspects from enquiries or, conversely, to identify with a very high degree of probability the guilty.

  2. DNA is now used in medicine to detect the possibility that diseases having a genetic origin may occur in an individual. This enables doctors to prescribe preventative treatments.

  3. It is hope

3.2 Interpretation beyond biography

The three interpretative strategies outlined in the previous section, and represented by Langdon, Freedberg, and Reynolds and Ostrow, largely rely on recreating the context contemporary with Caravaggio's painting. Other interpretations seem to have more to do with the context and priorities of the modern historian. If, therefore, the interpretation of a work of art is about more than the artist's particular intention regarding that work of art, then, as Martin Kemp asks,

3.2 Higher-order DNA structures: DNA twisting and torsional effects

As discussed earlier, the helical nature of DNA results for the most part from the properties of the bases, their interactions and the geometry of the helix itself. There is, however, another important contributor to the structure of DNA that is found within the cell. The DNA helix is actually under a torsional stress due to what is called DNA twisting, which arises when the two strands of the helix are twisted around the axis, as shown in Figure 11a.

9.2 Other hazards

9.2.1 Stumbles, falls, etc.

Such minor accidents are always possible, especially on rough or uneven terrain. It is recommended, therefore, that boots should be worn to protect the feet and ankles, and that outer clothing should be of a suitable nature to minimise the chance of cuts, scratches, and abrasions being sustained. Wearing gloves will minimise damage to hands.
