How to use helix in a sentence?

  1. Matt MacDonald:

    People visualize DNA in the classical helix structure in the way that Watson and Crick discovered it, when you put DNA into this solution, though, it starts to organize itself in a bulk liquid crystal. It’s not quite a liquid or a solid, it transitions through phases. That’s what people are seeing through these images. Being able to visualize it in an attractive way is pretty cool.
