Virtual Undergrad Town Hall: A Knowledge Base Analysis for Rosemary Officinalis Essential Oil (EO)
June 28, 2018
Virtual Undergraduate Town Hall
Speaker: Aneeta Uppal
Research Presentation: A Knowledge Base Analysis for Rosemary Officinalis Essential Oil (EO)
As the world of essential oils continues to grow, researchers are becoming intrigued by what possible therapeutic benefits these oils may contain. This presentation will go over how a knowledge base on already existing data from multiple platforms can be used to predict the possible molecular mechanisms of essential oils by looking at their chemical constituents.
Post-Discussion Chat: Join Aneeta Uppal & Lori Pollock for a chat to continue the discussion about undergraduate research opportunities, meet fellow students, and share your experiences.
Join us June 28th at 5:00pm ET
Speaker: Aneeta Uppal
Aneeta is a second year Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Bioinformatics. She received her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2015. She later moved to Charlotte and received her masters degree in bioinformatics at UNC Charlotte in 2016. She currently spends her time flipping between wet-lab science and computational biology. Her current research focuses on essential oils for human health.
Host: Lori Pollock, Professor at the University of Delaware
