Mitochondrial DNA

Mitochondrial DNA. Computer artwork of the genetic material (DNA, deoxyribonucleic acid) found in the cell structures called mitochondria. Mitochondrial DNA is circular in shape, more like a bacterial plasmid than the spiral shape of human DNA. It has the four nucleotide bases common to all DNA, and these bases (coloured) pair up to hold the strands together. Mitochondria drive the metabolism of a cell, allowing the reactions that provide energy for the cell. Because they have their own DNA, it is thought that they were once independent micro- organisms that were incorporated into cells in the early evolution of life. Most mitochondrial DNA is inherited from the mother

Julia Set:- Green worldpool

NOT FOR POSTCARD USE Fractal geometry. A computer graphics image entitled Green Worldpool. The image was derived from the JuliaSet, a class of shapes plotted from complex numbercoordinates. Each point is assigned a colourdepending upon its behaviour under a series ofsimple, but repeated, mathematical operations ormappings.

The better-knownMandelbrot Set arose as a result of attempts, madein the 1970's, to rationalise the massive varietyof forms of the Julia Set.

Artwork showing how to locate the Pole Star

Artwork showing how to locate the Pole Star, or Polaris. Polaris is situated between the prominent constellations of the Plough or Great Bear (Ursa Major) & Cassiopeia, which is in the form of a W. From northern latitudes, these constellations are above the horizon throughout the year. They are shown here as they appear at midnight on June 21, Midsummer's Day. The two end stars of the Plough act as pointers that lead directly (red arrow) to Polaris. The Pointers are Dubhe (nearest to Polaris) & Merak. Also shown, in the "handle" of the Plough, is the binary star system of Mizar & Alcor, which is visible to the naked eye. Mizar is the brighter of the two
