Naturally occurring DNA is a thicket, but its high tension and constant motion make it shuttle large transcriptions factors through its dense windings to binding sites, where the factors go to work. Researchers back this hypothesis with a very large, unique simulation. Here, DNA is in gray, transcription factor LacI in green. CREDIT Georgia Tech / Edmond Chow / Jeffrey Skolnick
