Mimicking Nature’s Chemical Strategies

Chemistry Au Naturel. ‘Mimicking nature’s clean and efficient ways. Over the past 3.5 billion years, cells have evolved into superlatively sophisticated chemical factories capable of churning out thousands of the most complex and capable molecules known. Whether it’s translating DNA into proteins, responding to a viral attack, or transforming sugar into cellular fuel, many biochemical feats rely on a choreographed series of steps. The exquisite efficiency with which cells manage this chemical jig is capturing the imagination of scientists such as David Liu at Harvard University.’
