Scientists in the Mexico City area have created an entirely new type and structure of protein that they hope will be useful in the study of ancient Mayan culture.
The new structure is made up of two layers of amino acids and it was produced by a collaboration of scientists at the University of Mexico.
The protein was developed to study ancient Mayas culture in a lab, but now scientists are looking to make it available for scientific research.
According to the University, the researchers hope to use the protein as part of a future study into the ancient Maya’s knowledge of chemistry, biology and other scientific disciplines.
The University’s director of biological sciences, Miguel Ángel M. Arango, said that the protein is a first step toward discovering new proteins that can be used for the study and understanding of ancient cultures.
“In addition to being able to learn about the structure of proteins and how they interact with one another, this is a new way to understand how ancient proteins work,” he said.
“It is not only a study in molecular biology and chemistry, it is also a study of the ancient peoples science and their technology.”
Scientists hope that the new structure will help researchers understand the ancient culture by studying its processes and their knowledge of molecular chemistry and biological processes.
“This structure will allow us to study what the Maya knew and were doing, the structure, structure, and structure again,” said Miguel Ångel Arango.
“Now we can look at how they did that and how we can use this to understand and recreate the Mayan civilizations.”
The research was carried out at the Center for Bioenergetics and Biotechnology in the Universidad Autónoma de México, the University and the National Autonomous University of Puerto Rico.
