The Super Models Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) kit provides a hands-on approach to understanding the molecular structure of DNA. Students easily construct 24 nucleotides from their molecular components, then bond them together to create a DNA chain of 12 pairs. After the initial DNA model has been constructed, the model can be used to show a variety of base sequences, including the mutation that causes sickle cell anemia. Use two or more kits to show the double helix formation.
Super Models: DNA Molecular Model kit includes more than 180 pieces, plus assembly instruction which includes information about DNA and student quiz. Ages 10+.
