Throwing Spanners At Nanobots

Event date: 22nd March 2015

Nanobots work furiously and specifically to produce the products required for a cell to respire, respond and reproduce. Using his research, Dr Nate Adams dissects the roles of nanobots, and using exciting demonstrations (involving fire and explosives!), brings photosynthesis, chemistry and spectroscopy to life on a big scale. Understanding how nanobots work helps us build a picture of how the entire cellular factory system functions. We can use this knowledge to help research in medicine, food security and bioengineering.
