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.

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 Genuine Molymod parts. Every model is checked for accuracy & the most highly strained bonds are glued for safe shipping anywhere in the world!

Note the relative sizes of the major-minor grooves are roughly 1.9:1 in size & closely match the actual ratio as demonsrated by our alpha helix molecular model. While the model can physically fit the minor groove this is prevented in the real thing by stearic hindrance.
