This DNA: The Double Helix interactive also includes:
Picture a double helix as a twisted ladder. Scholars see this image through a simulation that allows young scientists to observe a small fragment of DNA in many different formats. They compare the models, colors, bonds, and strands as they rotate the DNA.
- Review the different ways of drawing DNA and the benefits of each
- Discuss when you would want to highlight the elements, chains, and nucleotides depending on what you want to know
- Relies on prior knowledge of DNA, elements, and nucleotides
- Works well in a flipped or traditional classroom
- Provides a large amount of control over the DNA fragment
