Dots are used to represent the adjacency between digits. Each digit 0-9 is represented by a colored segment. Dots assigned to a segment represent digits that follow the digit represented by the segment. The position of the dot is roughly the position within the number that the digit appears.

Confocal micrograph showing the expression of different fluorescent proteins in the stem of a thale cress seedling (Arabidopsis thaliana). Arabidopsis was the first plant to have its entire genome sequenced and is an important model for studying plant biology. The middle of the image shows a region of high cell proliferation, which drives the growth and branching of the seedling.

Physicists twist water into knots with 3D printer
Nature: More than a century after the idea was first floated, physicists have finally figured out how to tie water in knots in the laboratory. Creating a knot in a fluid bears little resemblance to tying a knot in a shoelace. The entire three-dimensional (3D) volume of a fluid within a confined region, such as a vortex, must be twisted. Physicists Dustin Kleckner and William Irvine have now created a knotted vortex using a miniature version of an aeroplane wing built with a 3D printer. The researchers submerged their tiny wings in a tank of water and gave it a sudden acceleration to create a knotted structure. This research was conducted at the Irvine Lab at University of Chicago.
3D printers, a tool for both art and technology :)
