DNA Model

Print

This colorful and attractive DNA model makes it easy for students to understand the common, but difficult, topic of DNA structure.

Build a biologically accurate DNA model, over 2 feet tall, that can be used in a number of fun and educational ways:

  • Show the right-handed double helical structure of DNA
  • Incorporate STEM concepts through the use of modeling
  • Illustrate the base-pair relationship between purines and pyrimidines
  • Engage your students with this friendly, interactive model

It's easy — just attach the nucleotide bases to the backbone, pair the DNA strands, then twist them to form the familiar double helix.

Just like a puzzle — and just as in nature — this DNA model only fits together one way: adenine (A) pairs with thymine (T) and guanine (G) pairs with cytosine (C) on the sugar-phosphate backbones.

The DNA model includes everything you need to build one (1) biologically accurate DNA model, an instruction sheet, and 10 fun facts about DNA.

For home use, purchase the kit directly through Amazon or Edmunds Scientifics.
