This research will be conducted through plant growth/nutrient accumulation studies, human feeding trials, quantitative chemistry, and kinetic mathematical modeling techniques. Plant growth/nutrient accumulation studies will be used to improve plant isotopic labeling, human feeding trials will be conducted to gather information about nutrient levels in biological samples after nutrient ingestion, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry will be used to quantitate nutrient levels in biological samples; and compartmental modeling techniques will be used to delineate parameters of absorption and metabolism of nutrients.
