Argonne Lab researchers used the Advanced Photon Source to look at the structure of spider's dragline silk, which allows arachnids to swing from branches and dangle from window frames, the Spiderman equivalent of swinging from high buildings and dangling from Gotham’s towers. | Creative Commons photo by Flickr user <a href="">Djumbo</a>.

Brookhaven’s National Synchrotron Light Source x-ray beamline was used to reveal the atomic structure of the bioremediation enzyme. The liquid nitrogen in the foreground keeps the crystallized enzyme cool, protecting it from the heat of the x-rays that would otherwise damage the crystal. | Photo by Brookhaven National Laboratory

The DNA replication origin recognition complex (ORC) is a six-protein machine with a slightly twisted half-ring structure (yellow). ORC is proposed to wrap around and bend approximately 70 base pairs of double stranded DNA (red and blue). When a replication initiator Cdc6 (green) joins ORC, the partial ring is now complete and ready to load another protein onto the DNA. This last protein (not shown) is the enzyme that unwinds the double stranded DNA so each strand can be replicated. | Illustration courtesy of Brookhaven Lab.
