Virtual Science Cafe: Visualization of Biological Nanomachines in Life
7:00-8:00 p.m. Central Time
Biological macromolecules or biological nanomachines play critical roles in all forms of life; for example, producing energies from the food we take and defending us from viruses. Knowledge of these nanomachines’ three-dimensional structures is essential for a deep understanding of how they perform complicated tasks in the cell. In this program, Dr. Limei Zhang, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Structural Biology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will discuss how to “see” these invisible biological nanomachines and how this information can be used to improve health and protect the environment.
