Molecular mechanisms of plant viruses
How cells decode the genetic code
Sustainable control of crop diseases and pests
Many plant viruses have very specific interactions with aphid vectors, the "mosquitoes" of the plant world, and Juliette Doumayrou and Melissa Sheber found a key to virus entry into its aphid vector. Read more...
Viruses contribute to the widespread decline in honey bee health. Postdoc Jimena Carrillo-Tripp published a key paper revealing which viruses do better than others in mixed infections, and suggesting that viruses cooperate to make bees even sicker. Read more...
A collaboration with bioinformaticist Andrew Firth, Cambridge Univ, and plant virologist Véronique Ziegler-Graff, Institut de Biologie Moléculaire des Plantes, Strasbourg, where Allen Miller worked in 2012-2013, yielded the discovery of an important new gene in the luteovirus family of plant viruses.
