Arabidopsis thaliana is a seed so tiny that it can fit into Abraham Lincoln’s eye on a penny. Its small size, rapid life cycle and ability to produce thousands of seeds make this plant perfect for research. Now scientists who use it for studies have a new advantage.
An institute with the University of North Texas’s College of Engineering is part of a new cooperative agreement established by the Army Research Laboratory. The Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Processes Institute will be working with three other universities to research new ways to keep soldiers safe.
On April 20, 2010, a massive explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico led to 11 people being killed and millions of gallons of oil spilled. Since 2015, Warren Burggren and his colleagues have been researching how the spill lead fish to adapt in order to survive.
Researchers at the University of North Texas have identified a novel mutation that may be associated with prostate cancer in African American men, according to a new study published in PLOS Computational Biology.
For about the past 30 years, the U.S. Army has used the same tactical shelters for their soldiers. Now, the University of North Texas is part of a collaboration with a goal of making the next generation of those shelters, and two Army veterans who are College of Engineering students will be key in making it happen.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes – it seems almost every week a deadly natural disaster is reported in the news. Now researchers at the University of North Texas are working to help create walls that will stand up to those disasters, with hopes of saving homes and lives.
When you think of cancer fighters, you most likely don’t think of mathematicians, but Xuexia “Helen” Wang is both.
University of North Texas junior Isabel Delwel has received a major honor. The biology major is just one of 67 students in the U.S. to be selected to participate in the 2017 Howard Hughes Medical Institute Exceptional Research Opportunities Program.
A field full of planted cotton, all ready to harvest at the exact same time, exactly when wanted: It’s a farmer’s dream and could soon become a reality thanks to a University of North Texas professor.
A University of North Texas professor is part of an international team who just made a breakthrough in DNA research. Using a polymer matrix, the team was able to imprint a sequence of a single strand DNA.
