Biotechnology: Viruses, Biofuels, Proteins, oh my! at Brookhaven National Lab!
Are viruses alive? How do they affect us? Participants will learn how the power of microbes can be used to produce medicine, biofuels, and more. Through hands-on experiments, participants explore the structure and function of proteins to understand their role in everyday life. Participants will conduct a virus infection experiment, make biofuels, and produce and purify proteins.
