Biochemi™ Macromolecule 52 card deck for playing card games - have fun and learn science
Materials: Cards, box
Learn to identify common macromolecules: fatty acids, carbohydrates, peptides, and nucleic acids with Biochemi™ cards. Biochemi cards come in a 52 standard size card deck with 2 extra cards showing keys for the suits and elements. Unlike conventional card decks, the Biochemi cards replace the normal suits with biochemicals. In the Biochemi deck diamonds are replaced by fatty acids, hearts by carbohydrates, spades by nucleic acids, and clubs by peptides.
The biochemical images are shown in a space-filling mode with the standard CPK coloring scheme used in molecular modeling. Monomers are used for aces (formic acid, glucose, ATP, and methionine). The #2 cards show dimers, #3 cards show trimers, #4 cards show tetramers, #5 cards show pentamers, #6 cards show hexamers, #7 cards show heptamers, #8 cards show octamers, #9 cards show nonamers, and #10 cards show decamers. The Jacks, Kings, and Queens show larger fatty acids, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, or proteins. Structures with hydrogens are used wherever possible.
Biochemi cards can be used for all standard card games including Solitaire, Go Fish!, Rummy, Crazy Eights, Hearts (carbs), and Poker.
These cards make it easy, quick, and fun to learn the four common classes of biochemicals! Plus, they make a great gift for students, scientists, and teachers alike.
Each card is 2.5 x 3.5 in" in size. A card box is included.

Very fast shipping, individually shrink wrapped, came with beautiful matte postcards. Great!
The item matched the description.
I love the pictures on the cards! My family has had fun playing amino fish together! It makes learning about amino acids fun! The shipping was delayed some, but the seller compensated with an extra set of amino acids for the amino fish desk. We added them to the deck and we could play with even more players then before! So it was worth the wait! I can't wait to use these cards with my students! And improving my amino rummy skills... I'm ordering more cards from them now!
My items arrived really quickly and came with tons of extras!!! Quality of cards are better than I imagined. I will keep you on my fave list and visit often!
