These versatile modelling Toobers provide hands-on learning experiences in biology and chemistry. Students can model DNA or create protein structures and explore basic protein-folding principles. Toobers are flexible foam rods which have a soft wire core that allows them to hold their shape well and they can be simply straightened out afterwards and re-used. Length: 4 feet (120cm) long . Push pins not included.
Also useful for teaching:
• How hydrophilic/hydrophobic side-chains influence a protein’s structure
• How structure is a critical factor in many proteins’ function
