The Molecules of Life with Professor Richard Bowater of the University of East Anglia [UEA], Norwich.

The Cut Science Café always has an especially warm welcome for Richard who has supported the Café since its inception in 2014.


The Cut are thoroughly delighted to congratulate Richard on becoming a professor in 2020, so some good came of that year!

Richard and colleagues have published a short book titled 'Biochemistry: Molecules of Life'.

In collaboration with the Biochemical Society, scientists from UEA developed a FREE Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) titled "Biochemistry: Molecules of Life", which can be joined until the end of February. https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/biochemistry/16


In this talk Richard will focus primarily on the Information control centres, the nucleic acids, DNA and RNA. Richard will give an outline about DNA and its importance, a consideration of RNA and an explanation of the difference between genetic engineering and gene editing as well as touching on the construct of the Pfizer BioNTech mRNA vaccine.
