During my senior year of high school, I had to give presentations on both my year-long biochemistry internship and my Advanced Placement (AP) portfolio. I combined the two by creating a series of illustrations based on the biochemistry internship. My goals were to:

- Illustrate protein engineering in a way that is understandable to a nonscientific audience (when accompanied by my simplified explanations in the presentation)
- Strengthen my Photoshopping skills (Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 & CS3 used, though I've since been working with Adobe Illustrator as well)

**Note: I have no idea how well microwaves sterilize media. That image below was just a reminder to always use the autoclave instead!**
