Revolutionizing Biochemistry
Cumulatively, this field of research has come to be known as cryo-electron microscopy. The technique is used to freeze biomolecules in mid-movement and create accurate, three-dimensional images of sub-cellular and molecular structures and reveal details that were previously impossible to visualize... cryo-electron microscopy has been used to produce images of “everything from proteins that cause antibiotic resistance to the surface of the Zika virus.”

Grapevine red blotch-associated virus (GRBaV) is a newly identified virus of grapevines and a putative member of a new genus within the family Geminiviridae. This virus is associated with red blotch disease that was first reported in California in 2008. It affects the profitability of vineyards by substantially reducing fruit quality and ripening.

At WSU’s Mount Vernon Northwestern Washington Research and Extension Center, Dr. Du Toit is testing more than 600 varieties of spinach, both long-established local varieties and spinach from around the world, including ancient wild strains from spinach’s lands of origin in Iran, Turkey and Syria.
She is hunting for genetic markers — bits of DNA that reveal the varieties that naturally resist Fusarium wilt. To find them, she and her team of students and researchers will grow thousands of plants over the next several years, expose them to the fungus, and study the survivors’ DNA. Once they discover the vital genetic fingerprints, spinach breeders could use them to develop fungus-fighting spinach.
Leading WSU spinach research for more than 17 years, du Toit has made important progress. Now, she is convinced that growers need a new tool against Fusarium....
