About Protein Denaturation Virtual Lab Simulation
In the Protein Denaturation lab, you will learn the different ways to denature proteins and their relation to food science. You will perform various experiments using ovalbumin, the primary protein found in eggs, in order to understand the chemical and physical causes of protein denaturation, and how it affects food texture. Will you be able to unravel the mysteries of cooking an egg?
