Renowned geneticist and father of molecular biology at the U passes away.
In 2020, the College of Science will give hundreds of undergraduates the opportunity to contribute to real research projects the year that they step onto campus.
Savannah monitor lizards have a unique airflow pattern that is a hybrid of bird and mammal flow patterns.
“Worldwide, honeybee populations are in serious decline. That’s a big problem for humans—one in every three bites of food that you take were pollinated directly or indirectly by a bee.”
In a new study, U scientists discovered a new lineage of specialized brain cells, called Hoxb8-lineage microglia, and established a link between the lineage and OCD and anxiety in mice.
New research led by U biologists finds that some plants and trees’ water use can make droughts more intense.
Biologists drove the divergence of different-sized feather lice from a single population. In four years the evolved lice had trouble mating with each other, a sign of speciation and they caught it on tape.
Celebrate Pollinator Week in the U’s new bee-friendly garden.
U researchers find birds use a different organ to sing than humans do—producing sound with very high efficiency.
“I never fathomed that I’d become a widow at 34, left to raise my four children alone, the oldest 15, the baby 2. Medulloblastoma was supposed to be a pediatric brain tumor, so how could it put a 36-year-old man in the grave in just eight months? It felt like déjà vu. My daddy died from glioblastoma brain cancer when I was 20 …. But I’m not going to tell you a sob story. I started school at 35 determined to make a difference in the world of cancer and this fall, I’ll embark upon my next quest—a Ph.D. in oncological sciences studying brain cancer here at the U. If I am able to make a difference in just one life all the years of studying, sleepless nights and sacrificing a social life will be worth it.”
