DNA Molecular Models

There are many DNA Double Helix Models available for teaching & demonstration. The most recognizable is our 17 Base Pair DNA Model of which 2 were combined to build the Big Bang Theory DNA Model. Surprisingly, a much less expensive DNA Double Helix Model has many more advantages for teaching university & even high school students about the chemical structure & elegance of this most important molecule.

DNA, How Much Information Can It Store?

DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid is the stuff genes are made of.  Ever since the double helix structure of DNA was confirmed in 1953, the importance of this molecule & its impact on many aspects of our daily lives from biology & medicine to law enforcement cannot be overstated.  In this article, we offer a brief summary of what DNA does why it makes a great digital data storage medium.
