Google Doodle celebrates the 133rd birthday Japanese educator and biochemist Michiyo Tsujimura. Tsuji Village is famous for its pioneering research on the nutritional value of green tea. Researchers found that green tea contains a lot of vitamin C-this is the first molecular compound found it. Google doodles depict Tsujimura busy with scientific experiments on the ingredients tea. Tsujimara also isolate the ingredients that make green tea taste so bitter.

The tech giant is using graffiti to pay tribute to Tsuji Mara and shared a glimpse her journey through a dedicated post. Tsujihara was born Okagawa City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. In 1932, she became Japan’s first female doctor agriculture. Early in her career, she has been teaching science. In 1920, she became a scientific researcher at Hokkaido Imperial University and began to analyze the nutritional properties of Japanese silkworms.

Later, Tsujihara and Umetaro Suzuki went to Tokyo Imperial University to study the biochemistry of green tea. Their joint research shows that green tea contains a lot of vitamin C. 1929, she was able to isolate a bitter tea component called catechins, and later she was able to isolate even a bitter compound tannin.

When Tsujihara graduated as the first female agronomy doctor Japan in 1932, these years of research formed the main crux of her doctoral thesis “On the chemical composition of green tea.”

Tsujihara became the first director of the Home Economics Department of Tokyo Women’s Higher Normal School 1950. There is a stone monument in Okagawa to commemorate her achievements.

Just earlier this month, Google Doodle paid tribute to Tim Bergling (commonly known as Avicii), the Swedish musician known for his great contributions to EDM. On September 8th, to celebrate the musician’s 32nd birthday, a special video doodle was made and set as one of Avicii’s most popular singles “Wake Me Up”.
