Immunology Quizzes & Trivia

Formative assessment with the intent of checking and reinforcing information for Immunology exam 2. Facts not fully checked, learn at your own risk. Also Questions 5 and 8 may or may not register correctly for all participants. There should be four answers for each, if it seems wrong check your notes. I'm not sure why it fails for certain people.
