A 3D Model of Double-Helical DNA Showing Variable Chemical Details  Susan G. Cady
A 3D double-helical DNA model, made by placing beads on a wire and stringing beads through holes in plastic canvas, is described. Suggestions are given to enhance the basic helical frame to show the shapes and sizes of the nitrogenous base rings, 3' and 5' chain termini, and base pair hydrogen bonding. Students can incorporate random or real gene sequence data into their models.

Synthesis and Purification of a Hammerhead Ribozyme and a Fluorescein-Labeled RNA Substrate. A Biochemistry Laboratory: Part 1  Christine S. Chow and Smita Somne
The applications of in vitro transcription and chemical synthesis of RNA are discussed. This laboratory describes the in vitro synthesis of a 38-nucleotide hammerhead ribozyme and the synthesis of a 17-nucleotide fluorescein-labeled RNA substrate by using standard phosphoramidite methodologies, two widely used methods in modern RNA research.

An Attack on the AIDS Virus: Inhibition of the HIV-1 Protease. New Drug Development Based on the Structure and Activity of the Protease and its Role in the Replication and Maturation of the Virus  Volker, Eugene J.
Article shows how research into the biochemistry of HIV may lead to a method for controlling its growth and maturation. This research illustrates some basic enzyme chemistry and holds student appeal due to the tie into current affairs.
