DO NOT ORDER THIS MOLECULE (if you wish a personalized version):
Instead send me a message in which you specify what text you want to have encoded in your personalized DNA molecule model and what size option you wish.
After I have upload the personalized design, I will send you a message so that you can order that one.
Available in three size options:
Standard : Helix diameter ~ 2,3 cm (Scale: 1 Angstrom = 1,0mm)
Large: Helix diameter ~ 3,4 cm (Scale: 1 Angstrom = 1,5mm)
Huge : Helix diameter ~ 4,6 cm (Scale: 1 Angstrom = 2,0mm)
This model is size option "Standard".
It encodes the name R. Franklin, a scientist who played a big role in understanding the structure of the DNA molecule.
R Franklin in DNA code is CGT TTT CGT GCT AAT AAG CTC ATA GAC
DNA translation code used:
A = Alanine = GCT, B = (Alanine) = GCA, C = Cysteine = TGC, D = Aspartic acid = GAT,
E = Glutamic acid = GAG , F = Phenylalanine = TTT, G = Glycine = GGG, H = Histidine = CAT,
I = Isoleucine = ATA, J = (Isoleucine) = ATC, K = Lysine = AAG, L = Leucine = CTC,
M = Methionine = ATG, N = Asparagine = AAT, O = Pyrrolysine(unusual) = TAG,
P = Proline = CCC, Q = Glutamine = CAG, R = Arginine = CGT, S = Serine = TCA,
T = Threonine = ACT, U = Selenocysteine(unusual) = TGA, V = Valine = GTC,
W = Tryptophan = TGG, X = (Valine) = GTA, Y = Tyrosine = TAC, Z = (Tyrosine) = TAT
Base coloring is according to Nucleic Acid Database (NDB) Atlas:
A: Red, C: Yellow, G: Green, T: Blue
Start reading from the strand of which the backbone ends with an orange (phosphor) atom. That only leaves two possibilities.
But all this does not have to be explained to a scientists as all this is universal for molecular biology (except for the amino acids between brackets, as these letters are not encoded by an amino acid).

Pricing for Size option "Standard":
As this is a custom product, pricing will be different for every model. Pricing mainly depends on the number of letters you want encoded in the model. To give you an idea:
9 letters: €23,03
8 letters: €22,40
5 letters: €20,27
