Very cool illustration on DNA coiling. I enjoyed the measurements. It really brought home how small of a scale we are talking about.

I think this will be a great way to show students what is often times an abstract process. Thanks!

It was wonderfully animated and great for those of us who need the visual to go along with the material.

Animations are always cool, especially for those who have to see it as opposed to reading it. Thanks!

This is a really great animation. I really like the way it shows the formation of the solenoid. It really makes this abstract thing concrete.
