B3447: Enzymes-The Key to Life in Splash! Spring 2014 (Apr. 12 - 13, 2014)
For hundreds of years, enzymes have been used by almost every organism to perform crucial functions to sustain life. In this class, we will learn exactly how enzymes work and why they literally are the keys to survival. Together, we will participate in a series of interactive discussions and a hands-on activity to fully understand the power and potential of enzymes. We will also briefly explore some of the ongoing research towards using those enzymes to create new medicines and other natural products.
