Take a tour of molecular machines working in the cell and see what new things scientists have found out about them.
Hemoglobin is well known as the molecule that transfers oxygen in blood, but its precursor, heme, is lesser known.
We rarely give a second thought to our body’s energy production. Robots use a battery pack and long lengths of wiring to transfer electricity.
Breakthroughs in imaging are allowing scientists to see iconic molecular machines in unprecedented detail. This will be a great boon for design science.
Right now, within your bodies this little engine is cranking away. Without this machine, oxygen-dependent life could not exist.
