Certain coral species are able to survive warming waters due to climate change because they are able to "remember" how they lived through previous heat waves, according to Oregon State University College of Science researchers.
Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology, Francis Chan shares why the dungeness crab season in Oregon was delayed this year and why timing is everything when determining open season.
The American Physical Society shared physicist David Craig's efforts to increase undergraduate physics enrollment nationwide. Craig and Joel Corbo of the University of Colorado Boulder created the Departmental Action Leadership Institute. DALI is a one-year, cohort-based bootcamp that trains departments using the Effective Practices for Physics Programs guide.
Toxic algae has been found in the Columbia River for the third week in a row in the Tri-Cities. COS Associate Professor Kimberly Halsey discussed her research that developed a new way to monitor the danger associated with algae blooms.
Hundreds of fires continue to blaze in what officials say could become Canada’s worst fire season in recorded history. Jamie Cornelius, College of Science ecological physiologist, sampled blood from birds during bad smoke conditions to determine what happens physiologically.
Despite a decade of inconsistent findings, the microbiomes of autistic and non-autistic children do differ, according to a recent meta-analysis of 10 studies and 15 large datasets. Assistant Professor of Microbiology Maude David, spoke to The Transmitter about her work involving microbiome studies.
Oregon State University will be receiving a $500,000 federal grant towards assessing the impact of sea level rise against backshore dune environments. This announcement comes from senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and representatives Suzanne Bonamici and Val Hoyle. COS Professor Sally Hacker called this project the first of its kind to explore the environmental and economic value of dunes and cobble beaches as protective structures in the Pacific Northwest.
An HP device that dispenses single cells is empowering precision research in the College of Science. This technology can isolate living cells from specimens so scientists can study which proteins are implicated in aging, dementia and certain cancers.
