I came across this YouTube clip the other day that is well worth 3 1/2 minutes
of your time:
It was made by Tommy Christensen and shows how he built a model of DNA out of
LEGO bricks (of PDB entry 2DAU, to be precise) to celebrate the 40th
anniversary of the PDB. The clip also has educational value, explaining some
of the basics of DNA structure and more. And all this to the tunes of my
favourite big band (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047030/).
Check it out!
