Hi all,

I came across this YouTube clip the other day that is well worth 3 1/2 minutes 
of your time:


It was made by Tommy Christensen and shows how he built a model of DNA out of 
LEGO bricks (of PDB entry 2DAU, to be precise) to celebrate the 40th 
anniversary of the PDB. The clip also has educational value, explaining some of 
the basics of DNA structure and more. And all this to the tunes of my favourite 
big band (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047030/).

Check it out!
