STEMbite: DNA Folding

Super short, but very visual, this video models how DNA can pack a tremendous amount of information in a tiny space. Andrew Vander Heuvel visits a farm museum where some young ladies are making rope. The final strand is six times shorter than the original piece of twine, but much more dense. Perhaps the best use of this clip would be to embed it within a presentation on the DNA molecule.
