Abstract

In the Protein Synthesis simulation, you will learn about the difference between protein synthesis in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. You will see how we can use these systems to make artificial proteins to improve health, but also how these artificial proteins can be used for nefarious purposes such as blood doping. Will you be able to help the authorities identify the doping cheat?
