Dna origami directions and template mountain fold - a fold downward that forms the shape of an upside -down “v” valley fold - a fold upwards that form the shape of a “v. 3-d model of dna 1 print out the templates of the dna rungs and spines (stiff card works better then regular paper) you'll find the link to the dna model. This lesson introduces the process of using recombinant dna by using paper models to represent how a human gene such as the gene for insulin can be inserted into a. Activity: visualizing dna goals: to construct a paper model of a segment of dna to show how the component parts of the dna molecule “fit. Making protein chains – in this example, the color code is different than posted in the lesson, it was a prototype purpose: students will convert their name into a dna sequence and create a protein chain. Dna keychains teacher information overview: for this activity, students use beads and wire to create a dna molecule that shows the sugar/phosphate. Hold the model with the front side facing you 6 fold the two sides of the dna model so that the “front” side is flat 7 crease each solid, horizontal line into a mountain fold (away from you) 8 flip the model to the “back” side crease each solid diagonal line into a mountain fold (away from you) your model should look like this.
