Sarah is a student at local Ithaca High School. In the Jander lab, Sarah worked on a project investigating the role of glucosinolates on plant defense. She used mutants lacking the defense responses and performed feeding experiments with cabbage loopers. For this project, Sarah learned infiltrations, seed planting and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which she reported as her favorite.
