Here's a fun way to remember DNA Base Pairing using Star Wars:


For Non-Star Wars Geeks: 

AT-AT  stands for "All Terain Armored Transport".  Since AT-AT has 'AT' repeated twice it can remind you that there are 2 hydrogen bonds between Adenine and Thymine.

The crossguard lightsaber caused quite a buzz when introduced in the latest Star Wars movie.  The lightsaber has 3 beams which can remind you that there are 3 hydrogen bonds between Cytosine and Guanine.
