Since gamification modifies the brain's reward and pleasure center and ameliorates learning, using this resource might bring a lot of positive learning effects. It is well established that games by allowing winning and providing positive feedback can activate the brain's pleasure circuits by inducing the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Students will definitely remember information on proteins better. The only weakness might be a lot of difficult names of chemical compounds.
