Question:All cells require energy to live. We’ve learned how cells generate and then utilize that energy through the metabolic process.
As our understanding of these mechanisms has improved, we have been able to apply that knowledge for our own benefit. For example, the aerobic and anaerobic respiration processes of various organisms have been harnessed by both the food and drinks companies and the waste/biofuels industries. Also,consider the impact of understanding the cause of a metabolic disease and the therapies we can use. These are just a few illustrations of a rather vast field of research.
Choose ONE of the areas mentioned about and describe the process and how it relates to metabolism within the cell. Provide at least one specific (named) example in your description and how our understanding of that particular disease/enzyme/cell type has been of benefit to us and .
