First steps in human DNA replication dance captured at atomic resolution

A team has published pictures at very high atomic resolution of the multi-part protein complex that performs the very first step in the incredibly complex genome-replication dance that occurs when one cell becomes two. The images of the human version of this complex, called ORC – for origin recognition complex – show it in its active mode.
