After making progress last semester with intrafibrillar mineralization in the collagen hydrogels using Poly-Aspartic acid and DNA aptamers, Amanda is going to continue to make more hydrogels. This time, she will be mineralizing the gels with a lower concentration of poly-aspartic acid and two different DNA aptamers. Then, she will lyophilize the gels and take IR. Amanda is excited to see how these results compare to the data and SEM images from last semester!
