Cellular to DNA Fly In 2000

Cell created by editing config to allow 50,000,000 points, and using objects made of hypervoxels will running virtual ram on (4) 10,000 RPM striped SCSI drives on the first Dual P4 running (3) 800 cc 752 MB Samsung ram. Surprisingly with this much ram 7200 RPM IDE drives were able to play uncompressed edits in Speed Razor without pre rendering. I built the cell to show a fly in to what the actual DNA structure looks like and the tiny are that was being researched dynamically on supercomputer from X-ray crystallography solved portions of DNA and retroviruses in a few picoseconds (1 trillionth of a second). First they were baffled because the experiments jump to a static picture.

They wanted to see it move (this is far below the resolution of an electron microscope). I asked what the measurement was between the molecules and then we took the speed light travels per second and divided it and it turned out is faster that a picosecond so 4 picoseconds was about 40 seconds of animation. I did model the DNA including the actual largest solved DNA structure which was 250 base pairs which made up the first solenoid determined by cloning up a tiny area and then crystalizing it.

After 3 to 5 years the scientist shot an X-ray lazar beam at it with a metal plate and when enough fragments were analyzed they were fit together (what they mean by "solving the structure"). Each coil in my DNA model repeated that same sequence with the coordinates of the solved structures (provided by solving research doctor) for the fly in to park and dissolve into the dynamic simulation. I made the intro in 2000. We ran the first experiments in the late 1980's and early 1990s after I hooked up my friend who wrote boot up software for programs running on Cray Supercomputers. We ran the first job ever from a non main frame computer from a personal computer over a new thing scientists uses called the "World Wide Web". :-) Yes I am old!
