Native species declined while the average number of different crops grown in these states was cut in half and as modern agriculture began to focus on intensive production of corn and soybeans
UW–Madison will join a first-of-its-kind collaborative network for nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which researchers use to probe large biological molecules like proteins and RNA.
New research found that when songbirds sing during non-mating seasons, it’s because singing releases an opioid naturally produced in their brain —that’s right, a compound with the same biological makeup of the highly addictive painkillers.
Kevin Eliceiri says he has always believed that science is best done by building on the work of others and openly sharing what you have done.
New research finds that It finds that 40 percent of walleye populations are overharvested, which is ten times higher than the estimates fisheries managers currently use.
In recent years, scientists have teased out many of the secrets of biomineralization, the process by which sea urchins grow spines, mollusks build their shells…
New research is good news for ecologists and horticulturalists who are working to slow or stop the spread of the worms. But little remains known about the life cycle of these damaging invaders or how to stop them.
UW-Madison researchers describe a new cell line that enables better growth of H3N2 for vaccine use. The virus is also far less likely to mutate during production using this cell line, improving the chances of a match between vaccine and circulating influenza viruses.
Researcher Jan Huisken’s vision is to redesign a high-end optical microscope — normally big enough to fill an entire room — down to the dimensions of a suitcase, with minimal loss of power or precision.
Professor Carol E. Lee has just been awarded a grant from the French government to investigate the ability of plankton to evolve and adapt to a changing climate.
In a meeting at the Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship at the Wisconsin School of Business, Hyunjun Park said the device will hold digital information in DNA – life’s evolution-perfected “data storage” molecule.
