Protein
Protein (2006, 0.9MB, 22 sec)

‘This is a cartoon representation of the process
used to link amino acids to make a protein.’

Flavoprotein
Flavoprotein (2006, 1.3MB, 4 sec loop)

‘This is a model of one of the proteins used
in the electron transport chain. Basically, where
we get most of our energy to survive as living organisms.’

bilayer
Bilayer (2006, 3.3MB, 3 sec loop)

‘This is the general structure of our cell membranes.’

Beautiful animations -teaching materials- of chemical
processes & structures by Professor James K. Hardy
of the University of Akron. Thanks to Professor Hardy for
the accompanying explanations of what each animation
actually represents.
The whole series is a delight.
