A basic introduction to DNA.
- Build a segment of DNA
- Unzip and replicate
- Time required: one 50 minute class period
Packagaged as 12 individually segments for classroom use of 12 students or teams. Students will build models of up to 8 BP in length and turn into a helix. Individual pieces replicate basic DNA structure. The segments can be attached together to make a giant double helix over 2.7 M long, and can be 'unzipped' to permit students to replicate their segment. The reusable, color-coded, plastic components (672 pieces) are easily assembled or disassembled.
