Li Tian Lab
My work will be focused on observing the impact of post harvest processes on hemp physiological properties. The post harvest processes include drying, trimming, curing, and storage of the plant. I'll be testing cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids. There is one more objective that is not post harvest, but impactful for determining the proper time to harvest. I plan on developing a bioassay that detects cell wall degradation by-products during maturation.
