DNA drag race

By studying the rate at which DNA molecules jump between "nanopits," Brown University researchers have demonstrated a situation in which a non-equilibrium phenomenon depends upon entropy. The results are surprising because entropy is a concept that physicists understand only at equilibrium. The video shows a computer model of the experiment.

Topics:
  • entropy
  • disequilibrium
  • DNA
  • non-equilibrium phenomena
