Research Interests and Experiments
Princeton High School
1. Conducting research on the toxicological effects of antibacterial medicinal herbs on eukaryotic cells to not only fill the significant knowledge gap when it comes to the safe usage of these herbs but also to prove their efficacy relative to synthetic antibiotics.
1. Purification, SDS-PAGE analysis, and the denaturation studies of the his-tagged GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein).
2. DNA extraction from food sample containing GMO components, PCR of DNA from food sample to amplify DNA for further analysis of GMO presence in sample, and DNA annealing investigation.
3. Agarose gel electrophoresis of food sample DNA PCR products to separate DNA fragments and analysis of DNA fragment separation to test for GMO presence.
