Title: DNA Acrobatics in the Cell

Your DNA, all 3 billion base pairs and roughly 2 meters in length, must undergo a variety of twisting, turning, wrapping and coiling just to maintain your genetic information. What happens when things go wrong and gene mutations prevent these complex DNA manipulations? How proteins accomplish this amazing feat is only just the beginning.
