Dear Science Buddies,
My teacher has had us search your website in order to find a science project to use. He approved "BLASTing Flu Viruses", as long as it relates to cells. My team and I are lost as how to do this. How would you connect this project to cells?
Thank you!

This absolutely relates to cells! Your immune system made completely up of cells such as white blood cells, T-cells, B-cells to name a few, that are responsible for allowing vaccines to work. The cell membranes of these types of cells contain proteins that detect foreign molecules in our bodies. To get started I would search on google to find out how/why antibodies are created in the body. This will point you in the right direction for understanding how vaccines work.

Hope this helps!
