/sci/ I need help
I'm writing an abstract for a research proposal and my PI told me to include something about Detailed Characterization. I didn't want to ask her what that was, because I'm sure she already thinks I'm stupid. So I come to you for help.
tl;dr what is detailed characterization.
it might help if you provided some context - what do you work on?
If it involves some kind of biochemistry/biology then 'detailed characterization' likely means that working out the structure of some macromolecule like a protein was an important part of the project.
Read some abstracts of papers previously published by your PI.
