The spring 2021 issue of Grow magazine is starting to find its way into mailboxes, but you can also read it online. Feature stories include:
- A Cold, Hard Look at Macromolecules
Cryo-EM, an advanced microscopy technique that utilizes extremely cold temperatures and electron beams to illuminate the structures of some of the tiniest building blocks of life, has come to UW.
- New Frontiers of Potato Tech
Potatoes, often touted as a superfood, have untapped potential for the U.S. and beyond, so CALS scientists are working hard to find better ways to grow and breed them.
- The Answers Await on the Ocean Floor
And the ocean floor is where you’ll find Karthik Anantharaman as he deciphers the mysteries of a biological process with potent ecological and medical ramifications.
Other topics: tardigrades (aka water bears), an entrepreneurial undergrad, wild animals eating human food, treating high blood pressure with cheese, furan fatty acids and biofuels, six-legged livestock, the untold story of Black farmers, new global health major, and more.
And don’t forget the Final Exam. Can you ace the test for a chance to win a box of cheese from Babcock Hall? Good luck!
