"The Role of ELISA in Diagnosing HIV Patients"
Students explore how proten biotechnologies can be used to diagnose infectious disease specifically how ELISA uses immunological principles as well as enzymes to diagnose patients, and with specifics with HIV. They perform a successful ELISA to diagnose a potentially HIV positive patient and explore and practice using a lab notebook to record results.

High schoolers comprehend how biotechnology can be used to diagnose infectious disease such as protein technologies vs. DNA technologies. They comprehend procedure and uses of PCR, Western Blot, and ELISA as diagnostic tools. Students know how to keep a "messy" lab notebook and revisit immunological principles/applications in biotechnology.

Student Investigation on the Immune System and Hemeagglutination
Students perform an experiment to demonstrate the principles of antibody-antigen binding, the secondary immune response, cross reactivity, and complement fixation. The materials to be used include antibodies from a rabbit that was injected once with red cells from a sheep and also one that was injected three times with the red cells from a sheep.

The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree
Different islands in the Caribbean have very similar species of anole lizards, which each have their own place in the ecosystem. Researchers did several studies to determine whether the anoles evolved into the different species then migrated to the different islands or evolved independently on each island.
