Biology Exhibits from the Molecular Workbench

Mar. 12, 2009


This website explores biological molecules, self-assembly, and DNA. Zoom in on the macromolecules from which living things are made. Discover how, on the molecular level, things can assemble themselves. Learn how genetic information stored in DNA is read by cells and used to build proteins that cells need. Find out about protein folding, protein-substrate docking, and the important role of shapes and charges in self assembly
