Paper Abstract

Reproducible images of pBR322 plasmid molecules have been recorded by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) under n-propanol. By applying a stratigraphic analysis which takes advantage of the height information contained in the AFM images, it is possible to assign the chirality of the local supercoiling of the individual molecules.
