The visualization of single giant T4 DNA molecules, the contour pair of which was sufficient to examine the scaling property, was discussed using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The same T4DNA molecules were examined by fluorescence microscopy. The results showed the three distinguishable regions in the scaling property R∼Lν where R, L and ν were the end to end distance, contour length, and scaling exponent respectively.
