Deoxyribonucleic acid, DNA, our “genetic blueprint”… however you refer to this molecule, you know just how incredibly important and amazing it is! While our DNA is constantly within us, haven’t you ever wished you could give it a hug for all that it does? After all, it is responsible for the proper functioning of all living things! Now, you can have your own DNA double helix to adorn your work space or any area that could use some molecular love. Complete with a colorful sugar-phosphate backbone and alternating nucleotide bases, this little DNA will be sure to brighten your day!

After a ridiculously long hiatus thanks to school and grad school applications, I’d like to present a Sunflower Multipolar Neuron in time for the summer! 

Who says you can’t have seasonally-themed science items?? This cute, little Sunflower Multipolar Neuron will make your summer a little brighter! Like the original multipolar neuron and the multicolor multipolar neurons, this comes complete with its soma (cell body), nucleus, dendrites, myelin sheath, nodes of Ranvier, and axon terminal.
