Caption: Ideal knot. Computer artwork of a knot which can be used to mathematically model molecules of Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA). This kind of knot is said to be "ideal" or "irreducible", being formed from the shortest possible tube of constant diameter. Ideal knots have interesting features, including a direct relationship with the time- averaged shapes of knotted DNA molecules in solution. DNA encodes an organism's hereditary characteristics.
