Week 7 July 18 – July 22, 2011

This week was spent doing multiple repeats of the control and the initial experimental conditions with exposure of the plants to methyl jasmonate.

In the afternoons, we started a new set of experiments in which we were chilling the plant roots. We wanted to determine what changes were present in the chemical and physiological response of the plant to herbivory if the roots were cold. In this experiment, we placed the plant in a cool box filled with ice. The rest of the experiment was the same procedure as the other studies except that the plant roots were kept cold.

On Friday, the second version of our abstracts was due. These abstracts were sent to the departments like biology, chemistry, physics, medical, rather than to just the student advisor. In my case, my abstract was sent to the medical department, where the faculty selects a few abstracts so that the students can do not only a poster but also an oral presentation on their work. I hope I get selected!
