Twist! Untwist! Replicate! Transcribe! Do it all with the Dynamic DNA Kit!

Description

Twist! Untwist! Replicate! Transcribe! Now students can do it all with the brand new Dynamic DNA Kit©! Research shows that while students generally know DNA contains genetic information, they have trouble understanding how that genetic information is revealed and used. From the same company that developed the DNA Discovery Kit, this brand new model has a unique design which allows it to flex and unwind. Your students will reach a new level of understanding of DNA. They 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. What's more, they will twist and unwind the double helix to model DNA replication and RNA transcription. As one teacher said, "This is literally the diagram from the textbook that students can manipulate. It actually untwists between the two models!"

Perhaps the best DNA model, but a bit difficult to assemble/use.

Design and looks are nice overall, through the cost is substantial. The lack of well-written instructions (teacher guide) made this a bit of a challenge to assemble correctly (still not sure if it's correct). It seems like there would be more functionality than I can make work, but this was really just a novelty purchase for me as I'm not a professional in the field.
