SEM and TEM Photos of the Giant Samba Virus taken at CAM Make the April Cover of Viruses.

Colorized SEM and TEM photos taken at CAM were used for the cover of the April issue of Viruses. The photos are from research being conducted by Kristin Parent and Jason Schrad from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

The images were taken using cryo electron microscopy and ultra-high resolution scanning electron microscopy. Kristin was instrumental in bringing the technique of cryo electron microscopy to Michigan State University.
