The Molecule World DNA binding lab is a molecular modeling laboratory that helps students learn about the structure of DNA and explore the diverse types of molecules that bind to DNA.
Students in biology, genetics, biochemistry, and molecular biology courses will find this a useful tool to improve their understanding of the way that proteins and other molecules bind to and interact with DNA.
Designed for both college and upper level K12 students, the DNA binding lab helps teachers meet the Next Generation Science Standards by having students carry out scientific investigations with authentic materials, document their work, gather evidence to support their conclusion, and describe their findings.
Created with funding from the National Science Foundation, the Molecule World DNA binding lab is the first bioinformatics laboratory investigation on the iPad.

-Laboratory instructions are provided.
-Examples of molecules that bind to the major and minor grooves of DNA and forty different unknown structures are included.
-See how anti-cancer drugs, restriction enzymes, and other molecules interact with DNA
-Capture pictures of favorite molecules to share with friends and use as evidence in laboratory investigations
-Structures can be drawn in different ways (ball and stick, space fill, tubes)
-Identify elements in the structure or properties of amino acids with the color key
-Structures of DNA can be easily controlled by touch.
-Zoom in and out to view the contacts between DNA and other molecules
-Coloring molecules by residue, charge, hydrophobicity, and molecule highlight chemical properties of DNA and amino acids.
