DNA Starter Kit© General Instructions

Your students will use the DNA Starter Kit© to build a DNA model with the long continuous backbones and nucleotide bases, before giving the bases a twist to create the double helix. Younger grades will enjoy the hands-on process of turning that basic 2-D ladder into the 3-D double helix. With our DNA Starter Kit© Triphosphate Expansion Pack, upper-level students can explore how during the process of DNA replication (or RNA transcription), nucleotide triphosphates serve as the substrates that are joined together by DNA polymerase (or RNA polymerase) to create the complementary strand of DNA (or RNA).
