17 Base Pair DNA Model

Our best DNA model is pre-built with 17 base pairs on a rotatable base & makes a fine museum display, unique corporate gift or Big Bang Theory prop! Click on "Details" below to see a stereo (3D) image of this model.

Why buy the real thing & not an overpriced & inaccurate knock-off? Ours was designed in 2000 by Prof. Neil Straus of the University of Toronto & is as technically correct as can be made with (mostly) off the shelf parts. Every model is checked for accuracy & the most highly strained bonds are glued for safe shipping anywhere in the world!

Note in particular the relative sizes of the major:minor grooves which are roughly 1.9:1 & closely match the real thing not 4:1 as in the knockoff..
