The role of glyoxalase I in abiotic stress tolerance of soybean, Glycine max.
I am more than excited about being able to do this summer research project. This is an excellent opportunity for me to get my hands "dirty" in plant biology lab work. I am also looking forward to seeing the research completed by my peers in Montreal next summer. I would like to give a big thanks to Dr. Korth, Dr. Wolf and Dr. Miller for their encouragement and support.

Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Derivatization for Metabolic Flux Analysis
I am really excited to receive the ASPB SURF award. First, I thank ASPB for this fellowship to continue my research in metabolic engineering. My project involves improving the detection of isotopically labeled plant metabolites by mass spectrometry. This will provide important insights toward quantifying metabolic fluxes in plants. I am looking forward to a productive summer and I am sure that I will learn a lot from completing this research project.

Isotopic Signature of Photorespiration
Thank you, ASPB, for supporting undergraduate researchers. It is so exciting to not only become a member of ASPB, but also to have the opportunity to do some really cool research about photorespiration and to present my findings alongside my peers at the conference in Montreal. I would like to thank my colleague, Kathleen Chuchra-Zbytniuk and the other members of our lab for their support and ideas. And my heartfelt gratitude to my
