DNA Model Personalized, Standard Size, Per Atom

DNA Model Personalized, Standard Size, Per Atom 3d printed Miniatures SciFi Options in this model: Size = Standard. Colors = PerAtom.
Options in this model: Size = Standard. Colors = PerAtom.
  • Full Color Sandstone

    Fully colored material with a coarse finish and a delicate feel.


DO NOT ORDER THIS MOLECULE (if you wish a personalized version):
Instead send me a message in which you specify which options you prefer in your personalized DNA molecule model. After I have upload the personalized design, I will send you a message so that you can order that one.

The options you need to specify are:
Size: Standard (diameter 2,5 cm) or Big (diameter 5 cm)
Color: PerAtom or PerBase

This model is "Standard Size" and color option "PerAtom"
(This color option is scientifically correct but reading out the DNA code is nearly impossible).

In the color option "PerAtom" colors are according to CPK color assignment:
Hydrogen(H) = White; Carbon(C) = Black; Nitrogen(N) = Dark Blue; Oxygen(O) = Red; Phosphorus(P) = Orange;

Check out this model for an example of size option "Big" and color option "PerBase".
Other examples are available in the section DNA molecule personalized of my shop.

Pricing for Size option "Standard':
The name in the model here is 8 letters long. Divide the displayed pricing by 8 and multiply it by the number of letters in your name and you have an approximation of the price you will pay.


IN: 3.356 w x 3.356 d x 3.356 h
CM: 8.524 w x 2.38 d x 2.292 h

@MrHIDEn For the letters B, J, O, U, X and Z I have to cheat a bit, there are no aminoacids that have these letters as a DNA code, so there is no way to encode these letters in DNA in an official way. But I did not think up the translation for these letters myself, I copied it from a website, and I know more people use this code. The other letters are the official code for these aminoacids. You can easily check out Wikipedia to see the official code by searching for the term "amino acid". You can also find the other way to note amino acid sequences there that indeed uses a three letter code consisting of one capital and 2 small letters. Both notations are officially accepted, which of the two is used depends on the circumstances. As for companies coding their name in real DNA sequences, they do this by 1) Not using the letters mentioned above in their name (planning ahead), 2) Cheat in a similar way as I do.

@Molecule Is this translation table official one or it is your one? I have seen grater translation table with capital and small letters and other chars. I heard some team 'printed' real DNA code for their bacteria and inside that DNA code there is email address to contact them if someone read it. That is why I am curious if there is some official translation table. Regards

@Habbfreaky: Both letters A and B are represented in the molecule as a triplet that encodes for Alanine. But A is encoded as GCT an B is encoded by GCA.

@ Molecule So you use the A actually as a B? And is there a difference between the two Alanine used? Thanks.

@ Habbfreaky That is correct, you didn't overlook it, there is no amino acid that has the letter B as a symbol. For this I am cheating a bit. For the letters B, J, O, U, X and Z the nearest amino acid is used. You can find the amino acid and the corresponding basepair triplet in my comment below, dated 2011-03-13.

And if your name has the letter B in it? Doesn't show up in my books...

Out of curiosity, what codons are you associating the letters to?
