Ribosome project?

Post by Dave123 » Wed Sep 19, 2007 9:33 pm

Hello Everyone!

I am in high school and I am taking biology this year. I just got a project and I am assigned to make a 3D model of a Ribosome. It has to be larger than a shoebox. I have done some research on them and it mostly comes up as a small ball shaped object in the cell. Are there different parts of a Ribosome that I could show on this 3D model? How could I make it?

And ideas, pictures, or info is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Less complicated models can be found with google image search

Do a model that looks like the PDBs from that site and you will get an A+++++++
