Chemical Biology & Biochemistry Laboratory Using Genetic Code Expansion Manual

Proteins play vital roles in most biological processes; these roles include acting as catalysts for physiological reactions, as regulators for those reactions, or as structural framework around which these processes can occur. Proteins’ complex organization of diverse functionality in 3D space leads to an astonishing range of function for living organisms. Understanding this intimate relationship between structure and function is the backbone of understanding the natural world and is the key to controlling it (Description from resource).

Diversity and Difference in Communication (LibreTexts)

Interpersonal communication in health and social care services is by its nature diverse. As a consequence, achieving good or effective communication whether between service providers and service users, or among those working in a service means taking account of diversity, rather than assuming that every interaction will be the same. This text available through LibreTexts explores the ways in which difference and diversity impact on the nature of communication in health and social care services.
