|In this engaging Lab-Aid students model nucleic acids which are the largest molecules found in living organisms.
It is an excellent compliment to The Molecular Model of DNA and its Replication (Lab-Aids No. 71).
In this activity, the basic components of RNA and DNA are constructed. Students build the nucleotide which is composed of three parts: a five-carbon sugar, a phosphoric acid derivative called phosphate and a substance known as a nitrogen base. The parts are then linked together
to form a DNA model.
• Construct 3-dimensional models of basic components of RNA and DNA
• Build nucleotides, link them and form a DNA model
12 complete sets of molecular model components are provided.
