A helix is a twisted shape like a spring, screw or a spiral staircase.
The alpha helix in biology as well as the A and B forms of DNA are also right-handed helices.
In mathematics, a helix is a curve in 3-dimensional space.

 Helix - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Handedness (or chirality) is a property of the helix, not of the perspective: rotate a right-handed helix it remains right-handed.
A double helix typically consists geometrically of two congruent helices with the same axis, differing by a translation along the axis, which may or may not be half-way.
A conic helix may be defined as a spiral on a conic surface, with the distance to the apex an exponential function of the angle indicating direction from the axis.

 Alpha helix - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The amino-acid side chains are on the outside of the helix, and point roughly "downwards" (i.e., towards the N-terminus), like the branches of an evergreen tree (Christmas tree effect).
A helix has an overall dipole moment caused by the aggregate effect of all the individual dipoles from the carbonyl groups of the peptide bond pointing along the helix axis.
This is because of the convenient structural fact that the diameter of the α helix is 1.2 nanometres, the same as the width of the major groove in B-form DNA.

 biology - Alpha helix
In proteins, the α helix is a major structural motif in secondary structure.
Ordinarily, a helix has a buildup of positive charge at the N-terminal end and negative charge at the C-terminal end which is a destabilizing influence.
This is because of the structural coincidence of the α helix diameter of 12Å being the same as the width of the major groove in B-form DNA.

Comment: According to modern systematics, "Helix aperta", "Helix aspersa", and "Helix vermiculata" are not members of the Helix genus.

 The Hubble Helix
For the 14 hours of peak Leonid meteoroid flux in November 2002, the Hubble Space Telescope was pointed away from the radiant, and the solar arrays were oriented to minimize their cross-section.
By coincidence, one of the nearest and largest planetary nebulae, the Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), was nearly opposite the incoming Leonids and could be observed.
A detailed analysis, including a new color composite image (incorporating CTIO mosaic data), was later published in "Unraveling the Helix Nebula: it's structure and knots" (The Astronomical Journal, 128:2339 2356, 2004 November).
