This kit has 4 of each nucleotide in DNA and 2 caps for the top and bottom of the strand, this is enough for a 8 base pair long DNA strand.
This kit has labeled nucleotide bases with A and G being twice as long at C and T representing purines and pyrimidines and that patterns making only A fit T and C fit G. The squares on the top and bottom are set at a 45 degree offset to keep the helix structure the same for both strands (glue is still advised).
If you want to go the extra mile then you can print off the T’ as red, A’ as green, C’ as blue and G’ as yellow; these are the colours used to represent these nucleotides in fluorescent DNA sequencing.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
