Visualizing DNA

DNA... Everybody's heard of it and I think most have seen these spiraling coil-type visualizations of DNA (like this one). However, that doesn't mean there aren't other ways to visualize DNA. Take for instance DNA Rainbow. The idea is simple: assign a different color to each type of DNA-base and use that to display strands of DNA. The result is a different kind of visualization, one that allows one to see patterns and strange structures that you wouldn't see using the aforementioned coil. Fascinating!
