This is a good website for the teacher to show the students that the 3D structure of DNA. I spent about 20 minutes reviewing this site. I could use this to teach the topic of DNA structure in a Living Environment class. The students can be benefit from the model by fully understanding the structure of DNA. nitrogen bases pairing, double helix, etc.
