To make a double helix model of DNA out of candy, use toothpicks and colored marshmallows to create the base pairs and attach them to licorice strands to create the sugar and phosphate backbone. Once the model is constru...

To build a simple DNA model, make a double helix shape with beads, their color corresponding to the basic constituents of a DNA molecule: phosphate, sugar and base. Follow the correct order of how the parts of the DNA mo...

The shape of a DNA molecule is called a double helix, which looks like a twisting ladder. The "rungs" are made from four nitrogenous bases: adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine. Sugars and phosphate groups are also par...
