Purpose: Identify cell expansion inhibitors utilizing a high-throughput chemical synthesis and screen.
Designed and performed a high-throughput chemical synthesis and phenotype screen. Completed the synthesis of 40,000 novel compounds, the screening of 10,000 compounds and the writing a SOP for the automated dispersal ofArabidopsis thaliana seedlings in 96-well plates.
Created a molecular structure database for visualization and phenotype screen data entry.
Isolated and characterized putative inhibitors utilizing chemical analytic techniques (RP-HPLC fractionation, NMR, IR Spectroscopy.)
