DNA replication

My modification of Thoki Yenn’s DNA model. Folded from a long strip (1:8 or so) of metallic paper. Instructions for Thoki Yenn’s original DNA can be found in his Orikata book.

 

DNA replication is an important biological process in which the DNA double helix is unwound and each strand is used as a template to copy the other half.

 

This model can also be viewed as a an abstract structure, maybe a kind of figure with the two loose ends of the unwound helix resembling wings.
