DNA assembly. Computer artwork showing nucleic acid bases (upper left) binding together to form a double-helix of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, lower right). This process occurs naturally in cells as DNA replication, which is needed in order to pass genetic information to offspring. The mechanisms that control DNA formation are exploited in genetic engineering. Here, the sequence assembly involves aligning and merging many fragments of a much longer DNA sequence in order to reconstruct the original sequence.
