Yan Liu


Position Title


I was a Junior Specialist and also lab manager of the Barile Lab. My research area was to purify and characterize milk oligosaccharides from different milk samples and difference sources by NanoChip-Q-TOF and quantify milk oligoshaccrides and monosaccharides using Dionex HPAE-PAD. Meanwhile I was doing method development to quantify trace and novel oligosaccharides using Dionex HPAEA-PAD. When I first join this lab in Spring 2013, I was working with visiting professor Paola Domizio to characterize and quantify mannoproteins released by non-Saccharomyces yeast. We also studied the effect of mannoproteins on wine quality.
