Scientists have created the first 3D model of DNA, thanks to a new software buit by a young Harvard scientist. Depicting the way DNA packs itself inside a cell, we couldn't help but see it as a beach ball of life.
It was a major breakthrough in 1995: After 13 months, scientists 13 finally sequenced the entire genome of a bacteria. These days, a gene-slinger can do it in a few seconds. With a USB stick.
