Students can build a segment of the DNA model consisting of the four nucleotides, adenine, thymine, cytosine and guanine. The model is structured on that suggested by Watson and Crick. Each piece is color-coded to designate certain of the molecules making up the four nucleotides present in DNA.
Each of the 12 groups of students can construct a segment composed of six paired bases. Upon the completion of the twelve segments, they may be attached to construct a double helix DNA model over 12 feet long. The kit is designed for 50 students in 12 groups working simultaneously. Complete background information included.
