LAWRENCE — Four University of Kansas honors students who have been actively involved in undergraduate research during their university careers are competing for Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships, regarded as the premier undergraduate award to encourage excellence in science, engineering and…
Research offers a reason why diversity in plant species causes higher farming yield, solving ‘a bit of a mystery’
A study in Nature Communications based on field and greenhouse experiments at KU shows why a boost in agricultural yield comes from planting diverse crops rather than just one plant species: Soil pathogens harmful to plants have a harder time thriving.
A medical researcher working to understand the epigenetics of cancer will join the University of Kansas faculty next fall as part of The Department of Molecular Biosciences and University of Kansas Cancer Center.
Meet Drew Honeycutt, a Microbiology Major in Dr. David Davido’s Lab. Drew’s in his junior year and has been working in a research lab since December 2021!
RESEARCH OFFERS A REASON WHY DIVERSITY IN PLANT SPECIES CAUSES HIGHER FARMING YIELD, SOLVING 'A BIT OF A MYSTERY'
A study based on KU experiments shows how a boost in agricultural yield comes from planting diverse crops rather than just one plant species: Soil pathogens harmful to plants have a harder time thriving. The findings have implications for harvests ranging from large-scale Kansas farms to your home…
A scientist driven to understand and treat rare human diseases will join the University of Kansas faculty next fall, becoming part of a team using “big data” to discover new drugs.
Kelly Matsunaga, assistant curator of paleobotany and Thomas N. Taylor Assistant Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, has received a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation.
We are pleased to announce the 2023 edition of the BioHawk (KU Biology Alumni Magazine) is now available!
"Sea fireflies synchronize their sparkle to seek soulmates" new research by KU Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Professor Trevor Rivers finds.
LAWRENCE — Investigators at the University of Kansas have played a key role in deciphering a previously unidentified cluster of genes responsible for producing sartorypyrones, a chemical made by the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus, whose family can cause a deadly infection in humans. Their…
