Lab-Aids™ DNA-, RNA-Protein Synthesis Modeling Kit

Demystifies the DNA/RNA connection in protein synthesis, replication, transcription and translation is modeled and experience how information stored in DNA is expressed as a finished protein.

Manufacturer:  Lab-Aids™ 72

Catalog No. S19376

Includes: 12 sets of color-coded parts, teacher manual, background information and 24 student worksheets



This hands-on modeling approach makes the complex chemistry of DNA/RNA protein synthesis easily understood. The kit includes twelve packets of color-coded molecular model components.

Following step-by-step directions, students will:

  • Build and replicate an eight-rung DNA molecule
  • Use half the DNA ladder to build mRNA (messenger RNA)
  • Simulate mRNA movement by placing the mRNA on a ribosome
  • Simulate translation by matching the mRNA and its codons to the tRNA (transfer RNA) and its anti-codons
  • Disconnect the protein chain so the process can continue

Accommodates unlimited classes, each with 12 groups of 2 students.
