Biomedical illustration of an oligodendrocyte repairing damaged myelin sheaths of a motor neuron. Such damage exposes nerve fibers and disrupts the ability of the nerve to carry messages. It is associated with diseases such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

Biophysicist Opens Genomic Black Box, Finds Ramen Noodles - Top: A 3-D genome map of chromosome 14. Each pixel represents the similarity between the spatial neighborhoods of a pair of megabases. Bottom : A streamlined three-dimensional rendering of a Hilbert curve, the fractal space-filling curve into which chromosomes fold without tangling. by lieberman Aiden et al via wired.com #Human_Genome #Erez_Lieberman_Aiden #Ramen_Noodles #wired
