Summer 2022

This summer I had the opportunity to work in a biochemistry lab at Montana State University. Currently, there is an emerging field of ‘omics’, and laboratory techniques such as mass spectrometry, limited proteolysis, and differential scanning fluoroscopy give us insights into the chemical composition, structure, and conformation of biomolecules. I used these techniques to work on two unique projects that use similar biochemical principles to address arsenic toxicity and CO2 fixation.
