Amplification of Biochemical Signals: The ELISA Test

Amplification of Biochemical Signals: The ELISA Test

In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students "are introduced to the role of molecular shape, weak attractions and charge in biology and biochemistry, and then undertake a simulated Direct ELISA test." The activity itself is a java-based interactive resource built upon the free, open source Molecular Workbench software. In the activity, students are allowed to explore at their own pace in a digital environment full of demonstrations, illustrations, and models they can manipulate. In addition to the activity, visitors will find an overview of the activity, a test and rubric, central concepts, and their correlation to AAAS standards.
