Feature 1

Twist - untwist - replicate - transcribe. 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.

Dynamic DNA Kit© Contents and Assembly Directions

The 12 Base-Pair Set contains 6 A-T and 6 G-C base pairs, display stand and parts to model RNA, ATP and more. Find detailed contents and assembly instructions in these documents.
