Flow of Genetic Information Kit© Contents and Assembly Directions

Find information about the contents of your Flow of Genetic Information Kit© and directions for assembling the pieces so you and your students can start exploring DNA replication, RNA transcription and translation/protein synthesis.

Please allot approximately 45 minutes to assemble the first kit and 30 minutes for each additional kit (if you have more than one).

Note: You may wish to use the gray nucleotides to make the new "daughter" strands in the replication activity, in order to call student attention to the newly-synthesized DNA. You can also use them to model the different patterns that emerge in the Meselson and Stahl experiment that determined how the process of DNA replication occurs.
