It’s been a weird year. I spent some time in the field of virology, specifically in the detection of viral diseases in production animal medicine, using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) before I started graduate school. When I finished my work, I always cleaned my workspace in the hood with an RNase cleaner followed by ultraviolet (UV) light. When I read an article about how researchers are using UV light to control powdery mildew in the vineyard, a light bulb went off.
