Scientist Wants To Add More Building Blocks to the Body’s Protein-making Kit
News   Nov 06, 2019

Andrew Buller, professor of chemistry at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, wants to add more building blocks to the body’s protein-making kit. In nature, there exist 20 of these building blocks, called amino acids, which make up the proteins that perform the work required to sustain life. Buller says scientists can create more, allowing them to expand the ways in which cells build proteins.
