Team Enzyme mimics a Pokémon battle to identify the genetic modifications researchers are introducing to an enzyme, OpdA, in order to help it fight and breakdown organophosphates, a toxic compound used as a pesticide.


Eleanor is a chemist who works with toxic compounds called organophosphates. These compounds are used as pesticides and nerve agents and can harm people and the environment. Her research is trying to genetically modify an enzyme, OpdA, to improve its ability to break down organophosphates by tweaking the surface of the enzyme to change how it interacts with cells and other materials.



Inspired by the concept of Eleanor improving enzymes to help them battle toxic compounds, Oscar’s design is a parody of Pokémon. The design highlights the available genetic modifications for the OpdA enzyme when fighting an organophosphate.
