CHICAGO — There may come a day on the Illinois River when a fish swims up a chute, slides through a scanner, and, after being recognized as a feared silver carp, is sorted and removed, eventually ending up in a carp burger on your dinner plate. Keeping invasive carp out of the Great Lakes has …

By Chanel Zagon17 May 2021 23:03 A leading infectious diseases expert has described the Prime Minister’s proposed incentive of quarantine-free travel for vaccinated Australians as “not a bad concept”. Australia’s international borders are expected to remain closed until mid-2022, according to predictions in Federal Budget papers. However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday flagged the “next …

Researchers at AMBER, the SFI Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research, and from Trinity’s School of Physics, have developed next-generation, graphene-based sensing technology using their innovative G-Putty material. The team’s printed sensors are 50 times more sensitive than the industry standard and outperform other comparable nano-enabled sensors in an important metric seen as a …

ARCTIC is used to support research analysis, modeling, simulation and used to help make research-based predictions on phenomena.  Additionally, ARCTIC analyzes cyberinfrastructure, in which the system includes high-performance computing clusters, data storage systems, research networking, and cloud computing.   The National Science Foundation developed ARCTIC using a $1.2 million grant. GSU said more than 300 …

Due to working remotely during the pandemic, we’ve all been highly dependent on our internet connection. While our experiences of internet outages can be frustrating, they are typically resolved within a short period of time. Mass internet outages, on the other hand, affect a large population and are often attributed to a common source. Increasingly, …

BOSTON — Researchers are studying COVID-19 vaccine technology as a potential opportunity to develop vaccines for terminal illnesses like HIV and cancer. Some scientists believe mRNA technology is offering a promising development in decades’ worth of efforts. Preliminary data from an early-stage clinical trial out of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and The Scripps Research …

The menagerie of bacterial and fungal species living among us is ever growing – and this is no exception in low-gravity environments, such as the International Space Station (ISS).   Researchers from the United States and India working with NASA have now discovered four strains of bacteria living in different places in the ISS – …

Water is perhaps Earth’s most critical natural resource. Given increasing demand and increasingly stretched water resources, scientists are pursuing more innovative ways to use and reuse existing water, as well as to design new materials to improve water purification methods. Synthetically created semi-permeable polymer membranes used for contaminant solute removal can provide a level of …

Jim Basara, coordinator of a 6-acre community farm on Spring Island, said the Drip Fertigation Calculator helps make his job easier. “We are a 6-acre community farm,” Basara said. “We grow a whole range of vegetables here. Think of it as a private CSA (community supported agriculture) farm with sweet corn, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, …

Drones capture vegetation height, three-dimensional images for farms A WSU research team uses free satellite imagery and drones to provide data used for ecological monitoring to Whitman County and the Palouse Conservation District, which voluntarily works with community members to restore natural habitats. The team created effective protocols for integrating new technology into Washington conservation …
