Ludmilla is currently a student at Cornell University. She worked in the Jander lab with Dr. Jander on a project working to identify the biochemical pathway of meta-tyrosine synthesis in fescue. For this project, Ludmilla learned HPLC, GC-MS, and plant maintenance.
The results from my summer project are included in this publication:
Huang T., Rehak L., and Jander G. 2012. meta-Tyrosine in Festuca rubra ssp. commutata (Chewings fescue) is synthesized by hydroxylation of phenylalanine. Phytochemistry 75: 60-66
