DNA Structure
http://molvis.sdsc.edu/dna
A high-level interactive that lets the user look at the molecular structure of DNA from different angles. (The interactive requires the Chime plug-in. This plugin is free, but requires registration to download. Visit http://www.umass.edu/microbio/chime/getchime.htm for downloading instructions.)

DNA Interactive: Code
http://www.dnai.org/a/index.html
This site from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory provides a wealth of background information. The sections most relevant to this exhibit are Finding the Structure, Copying the Code, and Reading the Code.

DNA Interactive: Manipulation
http://www.dnai.org/b/index.html
