    New Comment: Honestly, this is one of my favorite videos because of the visuals. It made the information much more simplified. The audio was a little boring because there was no power/passion in the presenter’s voice, so maybe add some cool sound effects or some more excitement. Are amino acids the only component stabilizing the membrane?
