This semester, Amanda has been running lots of affinity experiments with collagen hydrogels and DNA aptamers! This is a new experiment for Amanda, who has worked on mineralization experiments up until this point. For these experiments, the collagen hydrogels are much smaller than what she was previously working with! She has also learned how to use the plate reader, which is an instrument she’s never used before. There’s still more work to be done with these affinity experiments, so she’ll be very busy this summer!
