ATP as easy as 1,2,3

There are a lot of projects that I have in the works that I can’t really talk about, so it is fun to actually put something out there that folks will seen sooner rather than later. Presenting ATP!

This story is a follow-up on the Photosynthesis story from last year and will focus on the basics of how ATP works. As I did with the Photosynthesis story, I will post this story a page at a time and invite comments from anyone willing to chime in. The story is written and the science has been vetted by a couple of colleagues, but any feedback will be useful. I am looking for comments on clarity, integrity of the science and entertainment value. The story will probably only be about 8-10 pages. For this tale, Harvey the grasshopper joins Wilbur and Ant Edna.

  1. Looks good! Can’t wait to read more. I teach about what it means for ATP hydrolysis to “drive” reactions – let’s see what you do with it, mister!

  10. AWESOME! I was looking for something “different” for my freshmen to explain ADP/ATP. I would like permission to use the whole thing in class.

  11. Hi Mike,
    Permission granted! And if you get a chance, let me know how the students respond to it.
    Good luck,

  12. Oh my… this is so damn good… i have a quiz tomorrow and i hope i can answer them easily….

    And i really like your comic, though…. good work 🙂

  13. Hi! These are amazing! I was hoping to get permission to share these with my students in class (freshman cell bio)! I will cite you of course and refer them to your website to see more of your awesome work!

  14. Jay,
    This is wonderful. The comic (especially the adorable Wilbur) was a huge hit with my freshmen! It interested some students that usually never participate.. they were even trying to read ahead! Thank you so much for this!

  15. This is fantastic!! I teach dual credit biology and this will make teaching/learning so much more interesting. With your permission I would like to use it in my class next Fall.
