Description Contents Teacher Resources

Dynamic DNA is a next generation teaching tool that will help your students better understand how the genetic information in DNA is revealed and used. Thanks to patented design innovations, students can twist and unwind the double helix to model DNA replication and RNA transcription. Additional pieces allow them to make ATP, consider epigenetics and gene expression, and much more! PLUS, Dynamic DNA retains the best features of our popular DNA Discovery Kit: It's accurate and easy to put together. Students can 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.

5 of 5 Excellent detailed model October 14, 2021
Reviewer: Scott Mellon from Danvers, MA United States  
The model is very well thought out and designed.  Assembly is clearly intended to start with construction of all nucleotides then proceed to linking the nucleotides into a chain, so it mimics the biological processes.  Geometry of assembling an individual nucleotide is fixed by the mating of precisely constructed pegs and holes between the sugar and base and sugar and phosphate, and only the 5'-nucleotides are possible.  Small magnets inside selected atoms guide linking the nucleotides into a chain and then base pairing to get correct bonding.  Assembly is quite foolproof.  All the molecular parts have been designed so that the geometry of the sugar-phosphate backbone is exactly correct and the base pairs are parallel.   The complete model can be twisted and untwisted because of some pivots built into some atomic links so that base stacking can be illustrated and enzymatic action (helicase) required for replication can be demonstrated.
