Wednesday june 11th, 12 PM SLT, it was the unveiling of Andra Renard’s Amino World Exhibit on ACS Island.
Amino World is an interactive and educational display that helps students identify amino acid residues in proteins.
Each amino acid has a distinctive side chain (R group) with special functions in a protein. For example : lysine has an alkaline amine that helps a protein bind to the acidic phosphates of DNA.
The Amino World exhibit is organized in five peptides, each composed of four amino acids of related structure.
To identify an amino acid, click the button in the tower nearby, or click an R group within the molecule. The R group will announce its name and fly out at the avatar. The avatar can then manipulate the R group until it disappears (in one minute) or copy the R group into one’s own inventory.
