Amino Acids by Side Chains
Amino acids are the building blocks of polypeptides and proteins, which are used as structural components and enzymes. If you’re taking biochemistry, organic chemistry, or genetics, you need to be familiar with the 20 amino acids and also know their side chains. It’s the nature of the side chains that […]

For real: If you shine a low-pressure sodium lamp on a yellow sodium flame, the flame will be black.
Flames emits light and heat, so it seems impossible to make black fire. However, you actually can make black fire by controlling the wavelengths of absorbed and emitted light. Black Fire Materials The set-up is simple and only requires a few materials: Alcohol Salt solution Low-pressure sodium (LPS) lamp Alcohol […]

Genetic Code Study Sheet
The genetic code is the set of instructions cells use to translate information from genetic material (DNA or mRNA) into amino acids. In turn, amino acids are strung together and modified to build proteins. The genetic code is sometimes called the universal code because it is used by nearly all […]
