Protein Project

I've assigned each of you two unique proteins to work with. These proteins will be the subject of a review paper you will write using the tools and techniques we will discuss during the semester. On the final day of class, you will turn in a 10-14 page review paper describing both of your proteins. The grading rubric containing a detailed explanation of what is expected for the assignment is below.
