Nature, once again proving that evolution is more powerful than we often conceptualize, seems to have invented the gear and employed it rather cleverly. worth reading.

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have recently developed techniques for visualizing the behaviour of biological nanostructures in both space and time, allowing them to directly measure stiffness and map its variation throughout the network. Given that the behaviour of biological materials are partly determined by their structure (the arrangement of atoms in three dimensional space and how the structure changes over time) this type of visualization holds a huge amount of promise for revealing insights into biomaterials that were previously hidden. Knowing the mechanical properties of DNA structures is crucial to building sturdy biological networks and understanding subcellular structural formation. The researchers say that this type of visualization of biomechanics in space and time should be applicable to the study of other biological nanomaterials, including the abnormal protein assemblies that underlie diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.  Click on the image or title to read the full article.
