Twist! Untwist! Replicate! Transcribe! Now students can do it ALL with the new Dynamic DNA Kit©!
Whether making health care decisions for themselves and their families or preparing for careers in medicine, research or drug development, today's students need to understand DNA. Research shows that while students know DNA contains genetic information, they have trouble understanding how that genetic information is revealed and used. Using the Dynamic DNA Kit,students will assemble the nucleotides, feel the hydrogen bonding of the A-T and G-C base pairs and discover the double helical structure of DNA - just as James Watson and Francis Crick did in 1953. PLUS, they will twist and unwind the double helix to model DNA replication and RNA transcription. Additional pieces allow them to make ATP and much more.
Magnets are used to simulate the bond connections between the A-T and G-C nucleotides.
