Mapping the paths of life

Biochemical Pathways provide an overview of the chemical reactions of cells in various species and organs. Dr. Michal first compiled the Pathways Chart in 1965 and has been fine-tuning it ever since. Today, and with the collaboration of Roche, the two enormous posters can be found hanging in just about every research institute from Argentina to New Zealand.
