  • Protein synthesis
  • Transcription and translation
  • And more!

Inquiry based explorations in the palm of your hand.

Hands on

Inquiry-based science

A COMPLETELY NEW APPROACH TO STUDYING MOLECULES

Through hands-on investigations, students explore the building blocks of life.

  • Base pairing
  • Catalytic rates
  • Energy capture
  • Gene expression
  • Cell biology

Our tribute to Rosalind Franklin

Now you too can discover DNA structure

IN 1952, DNA HISTORY WAS MADE
Raymond Gosling, working under the supervision of Rosalind Franklin, captured one of the most iconic images in all of science.

PHOTO 51
Photo 51, as it would become known, is widely credited with helping Watson and Crick successfully deduce the DNA double helix.

Today the structure of DNA is well known, but visualizing it in a meaningful way is still difficult.

Example: Watch DNA base pairing

Incredibly engaging

DNA AS A DYNAMIC MOLECULE 
In P51™, as DNA structure changes from single to double stranded, fluorescence will increase
