At the Royal Institution in London on Saturday 13th May Professor Elspeth Garman, assisted by Dr Helena Taberman and Diane Barret gave 3 demonstration lectures at their ‘Family Fun Day’ designed for under 11 year olds. Here the children, each labelled as one of the 20 amino acids that constitute proteins, are making a protein by first forming a line and then ‘folding’, stabilised by a disulphide bridge between the 2 children who are cysteines.
