Description

Sea Lavender plant samples were collected and examined in many different ways to identify any medicinal properties it may have. The plant samples were plated in order to grow endophytes, bacteria or fungus that live within a plant, and later were able to extract the metabolites. The extracts were processed in the Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS) machine to find any identifiable compounds within the extracts. Twenty identifiable compounds were found and connected to a medicinal use.
