1. Cut out all of the units needed to make the nucleotides from the patterns provided on the last page of the handout. (see table 1 for quantity needed) 2. Color code the Nitrogenous bases, phosphorus, and sugars: Adenine (Blue), Guanine (Green), Thymine (Yellow), Cytosine (Red), Phosphate (Black), and Deoxyribose (Purple) 3. Construct a NUCLEOTIDE by gluing or taping a phosphate, sugar, and one base together (see Diagram 1) 4. Finish constructing the other 23 nucleotides (24 Total) BASE PAIRING RULE For DNA: A pairs with T C pairs with G 5. Use 12 of your nucleotides to make the LEFT STRAND of your DNA model by taping the phosphates of ONE nucleotide to a deoxyribose sugar of ANOTHER nucleotide 6. When you have completed the left side of your model (12 nucleotides), RECORD the BASE SEQUENCE starting with the TOP base in Table 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
