Let your students discover the structure of DNA – just as Watson and Crick did. The DNA Discovery Kit© combines powerful magnets with accurate, 3-D nucleotides which make the kit self-instructive. As your students correctly join the nucleotides, they will "feel" hydrogen bonding. Teacher-developed and field-tested, the classroom kit contains 12 base pairs (six of each nucleotide). In addition to the base pairs, this collection also includes two Mini-Toobers, which allow for different properties of DNA to be displayed, such as unwinding the two strands to allow for transcription and replication machinery to gain access and the plectonemic nature of DNA.
