Protein Power 101 - Chemistry Teachers

A great opportunity for ATAR Chemistry Teachers to immerse themselves in the NEW proteins based workshop. Spend an interactive session exploring the primary, secondary and tertiary structure of proteins. This includes understanding the formation of zwitterions and role of functional groups. Then head to the lab for an investigation of unknown protein samples using authentic protein electrophoresis techniques. Next, conduct an analysis of protein structure using the same program biochemists use.
