    I came across this a while ago but I'm only just getting round to posting it. It's an animation showing how mitochondria generate ATP. Maybe quite relevant us, since mitochondrial dysfunction is thought to be a key part of ME/CFS:

    http://www.xvivo.net/powering-the-cell-mitochondria/

    "The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. This piece is the second in a series of award winning animations XVIVO is creating for Harvards educational website BioVisions at Harvard."

    Did anyone watch the other animations? This one called "Antivirotics" was pretty neat and discussed their new antiviral technology called "The Gene Trap"
