Develop an Affinity for Science!
Antibodies (also called immunoglobulins, or Igs) are specialized proteins that allow the immune system to distinguish between “self” and “non-self” proteins or polysaccharides. Antibody molecules comprise four linked polypeptide chains: two “heavy chains” and two “light chains” that are connected by disulfide bonds.

Dispatches from the Intern Desk: PCR, ELISA, & BBQ
I am currently a rising senior at McKinley Technology High School, and for the past six weeks I have also been an intern at Edvotek. Before I started interning, I was familiar with making and staining gels, pipetting, and working with bacteria, but only in a classroom setting. However, this internship has allowed me to acquire new hands-on biotechnology experiences such as running PCR, growing cells, and creating slides.
