More than 3.5m of DNA

Posted 27 January 2011

Take a look at the DNA model constructed by Professor David Ball and a team of helpers at Cleveland State University. It forms part of their celebration of the International Year of Chemistry and took a team of eight 7 hours to construct using 3384 atoms from 4 sets of our Orbit Proview DNA models and stands nearly 14ft high.

We customized the model kits so multiple models could be joined together and Professor Ball said, “Many thanks again for helping us construct such a great piece.”

If you are using our models as part of your IYC celebrations we’d love to hear from you. Send your details and pictures here.
