  • Welcome to the course Bill. Hope you will find the course interesting.

  • Thank you Jo. The link is meant to take you back to Step 1.9. It works for me. Hopefully it was a temporary glitch, which is fixed itself.... But let me know if not.

  • Glad it has been valuable. Chemical bonds are very important in Biology...

  • Welcome to the course Eloise and hope you will find it useful.

  • Thank you for the feedback Aahana.

  • Glad you found it interesting.

  • Welcome Thomas and you are not late at all. Hope you enjoy the course.

  • @GaryE The key is to lower the activation energy. This is achieved by catalysts. Temperature is one type of catalysts (a good one in chemistry or industry), but biologically is useless (as you correctly highlighted and yes, I have read the book- it's a great book :))... Does this make sense?

  • Glad this is sorted.

  • Yes, great point.

  • This is very interesting and thank you for posting. Enzymes can be regulated and that's really key to how things function.
