  • To better understand the rhizosphere, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory is developing a model instrument to look at the biological interactions in the rhizosphere in real time, in the field-- a capability that doesn’t currently exist. The instrument will accomplish this through the use of aptamers, which are short strands of genetic material that  can be customized to bind to a wide variety of specific target molecules.  With the help of computer software, a 3D image will be created of the targeted biochemicals in the root zone.
