J J Posted about 2 years ago Drew Berry: Animations of unseeable biology This is very attractive. Easy and fun to look at. It's this kind of thing that is going to help my son learn biology much easier than I have, since he'll be exposed at an early age - my textbooks of twenty years ago never caught my attention. Also, this gave me the idea for a toy! It consists of a computer program and a physical model of DNA. Take a digital photo of an animal whose genome has been mapped; say, a dog. A biologist pre-selects an interesting piece of genetic code, which, when altered, would produce significantly recognizable changes. Supply a physical plastic/wooden block model for the user to manipulate, switching G's for A's, etc. This physical model can be uploaded and inserted via USB, etc. and we can instantly see what new creature we've created! We might now have a dog with 3 legs, or no hair, or tusks, or whatever. This would also be an interesting challenge of reverse-engineering after the model has been all taken apart.
