Monday December 11th 2006, 9:22 PM

UNL Chemistry professor Xiao Cheng Zeng and his team have found double helixes of ice molecules that resemble the structure of DNA and self-assemble under high pressure inside carbon nanotubes. This discovery could have major implications for scientists in other fields who study the protein structures that cause diseases such as Alzheimer's and bovine spongiform ecephalitis (mad cow disease).
