The double helix that holds the genes of all life, as we know it.  Its double helix backbones wrap around the outside, holding the A-T and G-C base pairs in place like the steps of a spiral staircase.  This sculpture shows each atom and bond of 19 pairs, a tiny fragment of a real gene, and the molecular surface is a translucent veil surrounding the atoms.

Data for this model comes from the Protein Data Bank. The molecular surface was calculated by GRASS, created by Murad Nayal and Ben Hitz with NSF funding.

Too small?  Mega DNA is here.

Without illumination the crystal works best on a dark background.  It comes with clear rubber feet to avoid scratching your desk or mantel.

On the left, this base lights up your genome!  It's glossy black with white LEDs that are cool, long-lasting and energy-efficient.  Bright enough for the office by day, or a brilliant nightlight.

Light base, 3½ x 3½ x 1" – $20
