Proteins are essential machines of the cell! Join us in a phenomenon-based unit to explore the molecular modeling of insulin and related proteins. In this two-day workshop, teachers will use the software Jmol to explore protein structure and function through digital modeling. Participants will create and 3D print a protein from the insulin story to take with them! The unit presented in this workshop could be used to review for the Keystone Biology exam by synthesizing the following topics: transcription, translation, protein folding, post-translational modification, cell transport, cell signaling, metabolic disease, and biological macromolecules.
