2016 High School Video Challenge: Structural Biology and Diabetes
For the third year, RCSB PDB invites all high school students to create short videos that tell a molecular story of health and disease. This year's focus is the structural view of sugar metabolism and its complications leading to diabetes. To get started, teams are encouraged to use PDB-101 materials related to diabetes and molecular visualization.
Videos may be submitted from March 8 - May 29, 2016. Award winners will be announced on June 14, 2016.
