Cover Slide

“Minnesota Supercomputing Institute: An Exhibition From Circuit Boards to Amazing Molecules in 3-D ”

Location: Level 4 Science Museum

See first-hand how computers play a key role in all fields of research at the University of Minnesota. Learn how computers are used in Life Sciences in Computers for cures. Build a molecule with molecular models and then use a Graphical Interface to build the same molecule on a laptop. See Hemoglobin in 3-D. Hemoglobin gives the red color and transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues in the body.
