Did you know? Project Lead the Way® selected the DNA Discovery Kit© for its Biomedical Sciences Program.

For teaching at multiple levels. 3-D Molecular Designs. Let your students discover the structure of DNA just as Watson and Crick did. This kit incorporates powerful magnets into accurate 3-D nucleotide representations to make a fun, self-instructive model. As your students correctly join the nucleotides and connect base pairs, they will "feel" hydrogen bonding between the nucleotides and observe the helical structure of DNA develop. Teacher-developed and field-tested, the classroom kit contains 12 base pairs (6 of each nucleotide).

 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to learn DNA! I have used a number of different DNA models to teach DNA structure; this one is the best. In other molecular models, any bond can be taken apart, but that is inconvenient. The only bonds that you want to take apart in DNA are the hydrogen bonds for base pairing and the phosphodiester bonds in the sugar-phosphate backbone. In this model, bases and the deoxyribose are cast as a single plastic unit. Base pairing is magnetic. If you try to pair bases in a parallel, rather than antiparallel fashion, the magnets won't let you (great!). The phosphates snap into place for one bond and use magnets for the other, so no getting that wrong either. The assembled model on the stand easily shows the major and minor groove, and it's easy to start taking it apart to show base pairing and the phosophodiester backbone. It's also easily portable. This kit is perfect for hands-on exploration of DNA structure.
