Linus Pauling sees the flaws in what they think about proteins.
Proteins are too big and weak, there has to be something smaller in them. Let's start our research.
Hypothesis: There is something that makes proteins and holds them together.
Pauling directed his team to discover the shape of amino acids.
First we have to determine the shape of the building blocks of proteins. Through research we have found a system normally used for determining crystal shape that we can use for this. It's called X-ray Crystallography.
Pauling and his team had many trials and errors in finding the shape of the amino acids.
I don't think it is quite right, we should find more evidence, and make more models.
Mr. Pauling could this be right? Our techniques and models makes me think we may have found it.
Pauling and his team found the shape of amino acids
Pauling wrote a series of 7 papers
I have found the structure of amino acids. It is called the alpha helix. My next discovery will be the shape of DNA.
