RAMS 2006 SUMMER INTERNSHIP
This summer I experienced a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was invited to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, to become an amateur biologist participating in the RAMS (Research Alliance in Math and Science) program. I worked with three of the best biologist/mentors that the lab had to offer: Dr. Nagiza Samatova, Dr. Andrey Gorin, and Dr. Michael Leuze.
The objective of this internship was to develop an understanding of the bacterium E. coli, as changes in the metabolic fluxes sustain many bacterial growth problems and to obtain results that will be used to identify limitations of the developed models and reveal changes in the metabolic fluxes of the Central Metabolism.
This webpage is intended to give the viewer a basic overview on the enjoyable experience about my research project (E.Coli) and myself.
Thank you for visiting.
