This is the second of two presentations on DNA. The first page provides animations showing DNA’s overall structure (click on this sentence to go to that page).

This page provides 3D models of DNA. You can move and transform its parts, then assemble your own segment of DNA. You need to have Shockwave installed and Active X controls enabled. And Apple PC users should also CLICK HERE for special instructions on how to set up Shockwave. Finally, the software is a bit quirky: To move complex models you may have to drag the mouse slowly three or more times.
