Why does an organism need lysine?

In the book and movie “Jurassic Park”, the dinosaurs were engineered so that they could not make lysine. This, theoretically, meant that any animals that got loose from the park would not get their daily lysine pills and die.
a. Why does an organism need lysine?
b. You can’t make lysine either. How can you and the dinosaurs live without daily lysine pills?
