  Science headlines

Layered liquids arrange nanoparticles into useful configurations
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

Materials scientists have theorized a new 'oil-and-vinegar' approach to engineering self-assembling materials of unusual architectures made out of spherical nanoparticles. The resulting structures could prove useful to applications in optics, plasmonics, electronics and multi-stage catalysis.

Microgels let medical implants fight off bacteria
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

Joint replacement implants dipped in microgel flecks -- and then into a charged solution -- can release micro-doses of antibiotics when bacteria approach. The work could play a role in sharply reducing infection rates in one of the most common elective surgeries.

New tool maps a key food source for grizzly bears: huckleberries
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

Researchers have developed a new approach to map huckleberry distribution across Glacier National Park that uses publicly available satellite imagery. Tracking where huckleberry plants live can help biologists predict where grizzly bears will also be found.

New 3-D printing approach makes cell-scale lattice structures
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

A new way of making scaffolding for biological cultures could make it possible to grow cells that are highly uniform in shape and size, and potentially with certain functions. The new approach uses an extremely fine-scale form of 3-D printing, using an electric field to draw fibers one-tenth the width of a human hair.

Droughts could hit aging power plants hard
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

Droughts will pose a much larger threat to U.S. power plants with once-through cooling systems than scientists previously suspected, a new study shows. If surface waters warm 3 degrees Celsius and river flows drop 20 percent, drought-related impacts will account for about 20 percent of all shutdowns or capacity reductions at these plants. Retrofitting the plants with recirculating cooling systems will significantly reduce their vulnerability to costly impacts from both drought and environmental regulations.

Deciphering the walnut genome
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

New research could provide a major boost to the state's growing $1.6 billion walnut industry by making it easier to breed walnut trees better equipped to combat the soil-borne pathogens that now plague many of California's 4,800 growers.

Building starch backbones for lab-grown meat using Lego pieces
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

A new technique to spin starch fibers using Lego pieces could have future applications for lab-grown 'clean' meat, according to a team of food scientists.

Genetic tagging may help conserve the world's wildlife
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

Tracking animals using DNA signatures are ideally suited to answer the pressing questions required to conserve the world's wildlife, providing benefits over invasive methods such as ear tags and collars, according to a new study.

Air quality agencies can breathe easier about current emissions regulations
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

A new study provides a fuller picture of the relationship between nitrogen oxides -- the tailpipe-generated particles at the center of the Volkswagen scandal, also known as NOx, -- and PM2.5, the microscopic particles that can lodge in lungs.

Not all carrot germplasm is the same -- in terms of salinity tolerance
Posted on Tuesday March 26, 2019

A study has evaluated the response of diverse carrot germplasm to salinity stress, identified salt-tolerant carrot germplasm that may be used by breeders, and defined appropriate screening criteria for assessing salt tolerance in germinating carrot seed.
