Students Seek Antibodies Among the Alpacas
When you think of lab animals, alpacas don’t usually spring to mind. They tend to conjure up images of socks and sweaters. But chemist and biochemist Mark Spaller and his students have started to focus on this small South American cousin of the camel as an important part of their antibody protein studies.
