Event description

Description

DNA may get the all glory, but proteins are the workhorses of the body. They make up almost half of our bodies, including skin, antibodies, muscles and everything in between.

But what exactly are proteins? How are amino acids related? What do they look like? And most importantly, how do they do so much?

Take a deep dive into the wonderfully intricate and dynamic world of proteins! In this 3 hour class, students will become familiar with the online Protein Data Bank and get a chance to visualize and model protein structures using 3D modeling software. Learn to extract protein from living tissues and conduct basic biochemical experiments with the isolated protein.

This is a great introductory course to the world of proteins.
