Lighting the Way - Chemiluminescence Predicts Cell Growth
Division:Life Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School
Abstract:My project seeks to demonstrate a correlation between chemiluminescence and growth rate of cells in culture. Chemiluminescence is caused by oxygen radicals, which are produced as a by-product of metabolism. Metabolism is linked to growth rate. My results suggest that chemiluminescence may be an effective indicator of growth rate.
