"The Molecules of Life" is an interactive document which explains the background to the work done in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics at the University of Oxford. It is intended to be accessible to a wide, non-specialist audience including young people of school age. Members of the Laboratory are invited to expand and amend the document but should remember that the purpose of this document is to expand the public understanding of science!
"The Molecules of Life" was created for the "Bodyworks" event in the Biochemistry Department at the University of Oxford. "Bodyworks" was part of "SET95: seven days exploring science, engineering and technology", a nation-wide program for the public understanding of science.
