Choices for biological sciences

The choices offered below are based on the fact that many experiments in the biological sciences involve the interaction or relationship of two things. For instance, you might want to look at the interaction of one protein with another protein, a cell with the extracellular matrix, or possibly one thing within another such as metal ions in the hard tissue of insect teeth or a particular cell type in an organ. There are also options to study the structure, migration or isolation of a single item.

Choose one item from each list and then click the Show Possible Techniques button to see what techniques could help in your experiment.
