Science as a Second Language

by Charles Deber (pictured at work in his 13-Down)

This "early-week level" puzzle was constructed as a contest for team solving (students vs. faculty) at a University of Toronto departmental holiday party in December 2010, used (in revised form) again in December 2012, and has now (February 2103) been retooled especially for regular visitors to these pages. It helps to know a little biochemistry.
