a Code Beyond Genetics in DNA

"The genetic code specifies all the proteins that a cell makes. The second code, superimposed on the first, sets the placement of the nucleosomes, miniature protein spools around which the DNA is looped. The spools both protect and control access to the DNA itself". Full Story: Scientists Say They’ve Found a Code Beyond Genetics in DNA - New York Times
