Cassava Remodeling Site by Ravina

Posted by on Aug 12 2008 | Group projects

Students will investigate the nutritional value of cassava leaves and postulate ways to improve the nutritional value. Students will determine using optimization the optimal age to harvest cassava leaves.  Students will complete a sequence comparison of Cyagenic Glucoside in cassava leaves from different regions such as the Americas, Africa and Asia and look for correlation between sequence, nutritional profile, and geographic region.  Students will investigate possible molecular interactions between the molecules of the cassava leaf and glycerol and fatty acid which could result in the neutralization of cyanide.
